This tale takes its title from one Jack Roberts, a Texas ranger in the old days of the Civil War, who was known to his friends as "Tex." Seldom has a more attractive character been presented, or one whose adventures with bad men, Mexicans, and Indians are more thrilling. Mr. Raine knows the country and the people of which he writes, and the book is as vivid and realistic as it is absorbing--tense with gun-play, stirring exploits, and with a charming romance interwoven with its strenuous incidents. It is just the book for everyone who craves the wild, free life of the old-time West.

d what might pass for "Howdy!" if one were an optimist.

Roberts explained his presence by saying: "You sent for me, Mr. Wadley."

"H'm! That durned fool York done bust his laig. Think you can take a herd up the trail to Tascosa?"

Lack of Political Correctness abounds in this fast moving story which portrays the accountability that must occur between the honest toughness of good-men and the brutal greed of the bad. As with most good stories of this ilk it includes the devotion of a rancher's beautiful daughter; towards both sides as and when it is found to be necessary.

Easily read this book flows well and would excite anyone with an interest in the tales of the American old-time West
