Synopsis: Capt. John R. Hughes' exploits in tracking down horse thieves led not only to his earning the enmity of the Wild Bunch, the desperados led by Butch Cassidy, but also to his becoming a Texas Ranger. Originally published in 1942 with a new introduction by Mike Cox. Illustrations are by Texas native, Frank Anthony Stanush.
 

About the Author:

Book Description TX Am-McWhiney Foundation, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Naturally self-effacing and deferential, Captain John Reynolds Hughes is not as famous today as his publicity-hog contemporary Captain Bill McDonald. Yet, Texas Rangers of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries considered him an authentic hero, a straight-ahead lawman that did his job and left the talking to journalists. Hughes became a ranger in 1887, serving in the celebrated Frontier Battalion. In 1900, he won appointment as captain in command of Company D. During his long career he served primarily along the Texas-Mexico border where his word became law. State offi cials subsequently promoted him senior captain, moving his headquarters to Austin. Hughes retired in 1915-having served as ranger and captain longer than any man on the force. This State House Press reprint of Border Boss makes this Texas classic available to a new generation of readers and introduces them to one of the bravest rangers who ever sported the cinco peso.
