Summary
  • "Chronicles the life of Frank Hamer, whose extraordinary career as a Texas Ranger made him one of the West's most legendary lawmen."--NoveList
  • From the horseback days of the Old West through the gangster days of the 1930s, Hamer stood on the frontlines of some of the most important and exciting periods in American history. He participated in the Bandit War of 1915, battled the Mexican Revolution's spillover across the border, protected African Americans from lynch mobs and the Ku Klux Klan, and ran down gangsters, bootleggers, and Communists. But popular media have labeled Hamer as the "villain" of the 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde. Boessenecker sets out to restore Hamer's good name, and tells the full story of this near-mythic lawman
