This first volume of the Savage Frontier series is a comprehensive account of the formative years of the legendary Texas Rangers. Stephen L. Moore provides fresh detail about each ranging unit formed during the Texas Revolution and narrates their involvement in the pivotal battle of San Jacinto and later battles at Parker's Fort, the Elm Creek Fight, Post Oak Springs Massacre, and the Stone Houses Fight.

Of particular interest to the reader will be the various rosters of the companies, which are found throughout the book. The first edition was previously published by Republic of Texas Press in paperback only; it has now been reprinted in hardcover and paperback.
