Listed in True West Magazine as one of "The Western Books You Should Own."
The first authentic biography of one of the most famous of the nineteenth century Texas Rangers—Capt. Leander H. McNelly. No history of the murderous Sutton-Taylor Feud, or of the Texas State Police, or of the depredations of the Mexican Gen. Juan H. Cortina, or of the rancher Richard King, or of the infamous Nueces Strip can be written without major emphases on the influence of McNelly and the men who followed him so loyally.
