Lone Star Justice: The First Century of the Texas Rangers
by Robert M. Utley
Originally published in 2002; more than any other state in the Union, Texas boast of its rich origins as a proto-nation, so I've always been fascinated to study it. The rangers are one element that most people know about, but probably not half as well as they think, so this is an invaluable primer.
