About this title

Synopsis:

Best known as the Texas Ranger captain who tracked down and killed Bonnie and Clyde, Frank Hamer was designated by Walter Prescott Webb as "one of the three most fearless men in Western history." This reprint of the 1968 edition gives the complete details of the Barrow-Parker rampage and is the only authentic account of the events leading to their deaths. With over 100 pages of illustrations, I'm Frank Hamer tells the amazing story of one of the greatest Texas Rangers of all time.

About the Author:

JOHN H. JENKINS attended the University of Texas on a General Motors Fellowship and a Rotary Fellowship and became a member of Delta Tau Delta fraternity. After a year of studies at the University of Texas Law School he began a career as a publisher and bookseller in Austin. Between 1963 and 1990 the Jenkins Publishing Company, including the Pemberton Press for trade publishing and the San Felipe Press for private publishing, produced more than three hundred titles, several of which Jenkins wrote or edited. In 1965 he compiled and published Cracker Barrel Chronicles: A Bibliography of Texas Town and County Histories, a comprehensive listing of five thousand titles, which won the Award of Merit from the American Association for State and Local History. His 10-volume Papers of the Texas Revolution, winner of the Summerfield G. Roberts Award from the Sons of the Republic of Texas as the outstanding publication on early Texas history for 1973, is a massive compilation of primary sources. An equally important work by Jenkins, Basic Texas Books, published in 1983, is a descriptive bibliographical guide to the most important books on Texas history. It was reissued in a revised edition by the Texas State Historical Association in 1988.

H. GORDON FROST was a professional writer and high school teacher in El Paso. He was also author of Gentlemen's Club: The Story of Prostitution in El Paso.
