Reviews

""A powerful, moving read. . . . One Ranger is as fascinating as the memoirs of nineteenth-century Rangers James Gillett and George Durham, and the histories by Frederick Wilkins and Walter Prescott Webb--and equally as important." - True West
"The writing smacks of the truths that are hard-won from a lifetime of dealing out justice--sometimes on horseback, like the Lone Ranger used to do--in a lonesome terrain where your word is only as good as the gun and the reputation that back it up." - Texas Monthly
"Superb memoir . . . One Ranger is Jackson's own story, a personal tale of adventure, service, love, grief, heartache, and hope. Yet embodied within its pages is the story of every Ranger--the pages of the book are thick with the weight of history. Jackson well knows his place in the continuum of the Texas Rangers, the history of Texas, and the epic of what is today the American Southwest." - America's 1st Freedom
"A straight-shooting book that blow[s] a few holes in the Ranger myth while providing more ammunition for the myth's continuation. . . . reads more like a novel than [an] autobiography . . ." - Austin American-Statesman
