Working the Border
A Texas Ranger's StoryBook - 2009
"A realistic look into the life of a Texas Ranger working the unsecured border between Texas and Mexico, this book describes some of the cases worked by Texas Rangers assigned to this area. Even in the twenty-first century, Texas is still dealing with the same type of problems that existed in the 1800's. Cattle rustling, theft and murder, as well as present day problems such as drug smuggling, kidnapping and the violent struggle for the drug routes into Texas, affecting La Frontera as never before. In this book Doyle Holdridge vividly describes what it's like evey day for a Ranger working to protect the people of Texas from criminal elements on both sides of the border"--from Cover p. .
