Abstract

2011 Book Reviews 219 examination of the Savage Frontier series, particularly due to the in-depth research documenting exactly who served, when, and (often) under what circumstances. It is these particulars that reveal the unexpected diversity of the early Ranger companies. The racial and cultural diversity of early Texan forces may be the most sig- nificant contribution Moore has made to Texas Ranger historiography. Before his efforts, the concept of an Indian or Tejano Ranger during the Republic period was at most mentioned in passing and largely unknown to the general public and to many scholars. Moore’s research has established that Ranger ser vice was definitely not the exclusive province of Anglos, though they did make up the majority of the manpower in most instances during the period studied. The diversity and multi- ethnic cooperation documented by Moore allows for a more nuanced understand- ing of the inter-ethnic cultural dynamics of nineteenth-centur y Texas.
