Southwestern Historical Quarterly July Texas Ranger N. O. Reynolds: The Intrepid. By Chuck Parsons and Donaly E. Brice. (Denton: University of North Texas, 2014. Pp. 464. Photographs, maps, notes, bibliography, index.) This is an impressive book, rich in detail, about a nineteenth-century lawman unknown to the vast majority of Texans. In this first biography on N. O. Reynolds, the authors cover his law enforcement career as a Texas Ranger in the Frontier Battalion from 1874 to 1879, when he advanced to sergeant and then lieutenant in command of Company E, and the elective offices he later held as city marshal of Lampasas and then sheriff of Lampasas County. The last chapter is devoted to his success as a businessman after he ended his law enforcement career. The authors reveal that Reynolds kept some things close to his vest. The name given to him at birth was Orcelus Nelson Reynolds. Apparently displeased with his first name, he made it his middle name and went by his initials. After he came to Texas, he usually hid his Pennsylvania birthplace, claiming to be from Missouri, and he carefully left the impression he had served in the Confederacy, although he had fought
