The Texan looked down at the ruffian under his feet.

"Do you know the road to Mexico by the Arivaca cut-off?"

"Yes."

"Then climb into my rig and hit the trail hard-- burn it up till you've crossed the line."

The fellow began to whine thanks, but the man above would have none of them, "I'm giving you this chance for your sister's sake. You won't make anything of it. You're born for meanness and deviltry. I know your kind from El Paso to Dawson. But she's game and she's white clear through, even if she is your sister and a plumb little fool. Can you walk to the road?" he ended abruptly.

Western novels by William Macleod Raine always leave a strong impression that he lived within and at the time of the event being told. Indeed in the present story reference is made to a "Kodak" picture which puts the tale between 1888 and 1910, and one gets the feeling that Raine was personally acquainted with some or all of the real people behind the fictitious tale. The modern reader is presented therefore with a history long since past - which to Raine (who lived on the border of Texas) was happening at that time. From that perspective, the never say die attitude of the Texas Ranger (and indeed the cattlemen and women of the frontier) hold a serious and intriguing fascination.

In his book, Raine's third we are in fact presented with two novellas; the plots of which stand alone, but which are glued together by a single character - Steve Fraser, Texas Ranger.

The books seems a little half finished at times and is somewhat jumpy but it is a good read for anyone into the western genre.
