The Real Book About the Texas Rangers, Allen, Allyn
3 Allen, Allyn The Real Book About the Texas Rangers
B0007E5WLG HARDCOVER Used; Very Good 
Garden City Books, Garden City, 1952. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Jacket protected by BroDart clear mylar cover. C. L. Hartman (illustrator) (illustrator). Book Club Edition. An action packed, colorful appreciation of bravery of these lean-jawed soldiers of fortune. The Texas Rangers, with a history ripe in adventure, anecdote and personalities, has been a rich reservoir for Western material. Here is a lively account of some of the high spots since its founding in the early 1800's. Begun as a volunteer organization to protect settlers from Indian raids, the Texas Rangers came to be considered a Texas institution, whether in time of war, or in periods when internal war was waged against cattle thieves, bandits, killers and outlaws. This is the story, too, of famous Rangers, -- Armstrong, noted for the deadly persistence with which he tracked down the outlaws; McDonald, who when told he could not handle a mob single-handed is supposed to have answered, ""Well, you aint got but one mob, have you?""; Tumlinson, McCulloch, McNelly, on down to the 20th century Ranger Frank Hamer.

The Stolen Steers: A Tale of the Big Thicket, Bill Brett
8 Bill Brett The Stolen Steers: A Tale of the Big Thicket
0890960267 / 9780890960264 EX-LIBRARY HARDCOVER Used; Good 
EX-LIBRARY with usual stamps and pocket. Both book and Jacket are in Good condition. Bill Brett's folk tale of life in the Big Thicket takes place in the years around the turn of the century. Brett heard the story from the old man who had lived it. He retells it as a captivating, earthy yarn that won the National Cowboy Hall of Fame's Western Heritage Award for folklore in 1978, when it first appeared in cloth edition. The narrator, a young man hurt in an oilfield accident and down on his luck, runs out of money. When the opportunity presents itself, he steals a small herd of steers and a horse and sets out to drive them to a distant market. Suddenly his plans are halted when he comes down with a severe case of malaria. Fortunately he meets a poor but generous black man and woman who nurse him back to health, spending their last dollar to buy his medicine. Like a modern Robin Hood, the young man shares the fruits of his theft with the poor, trading the stolen steers for a small farm he then signs over to his benefactors. They never learn the source of their wealth, which they in turn continue to share with others. In one more effort to repay his friends--and in a final act of revenge for a wrong done to them--he ensures their security while giving up his own.
