"Joaquin Jackson's frank and colorful account of his long career as a modern-day
Texas Ranger thrills like an action novel.I could hardly put the book down.The writing is superb."
Elmer Kelton, award-winning author of The Good Old Boys

"Joaquin Jackson told me that West Texas weather is so dry and hard on women that his wife put
Crisco on her face. That is the colorful storytelling you can expect in this bookreally wonderful tales
that are told in true Texas language."Ann Richards, former governor of Texas

When his picture appeared on the cover of Texas Monthly, Joaquin Jackson became the icon of
the modern Texas Rangers. Nick Nolte modeled his character on him in the movie Extreme Prejudice.
Jackson even had a speaking part of his own in The Good Old Boys with Tommy Lee Jones. But
the role that Jackson has always played the best is that of the man who wears the silver badge cut from a
Mexican cinco peso coin, a working Texas Ranger.

Legend says that one Ranger is all it takes to put down lawlessness and restore the peaceone riot, one
Ranger. In this adventure-filled memoir, Joaquin Jackson recalls what it was like to be the Ranger who
responded when riots threatened, violence erupted, and criminals needed to be brought to justice across a
wide swath of the Texas-Mexico border from 1966 to 1993.

H. Joaquin Jackson retired from the Texas Rangers in 1993. Today he lives in Alpine, Texas, where he is the owner and operator of Ranger Investigations, a private investigative company. David Marion Wilkinson is an award-winning writer whose most recent books are Oblivion's Altar, The Empty Quarter, and Not between Brothers.
