Yours to Command: The Life and Legend of Texas Ranger Captain Bill McDonald
By Harold J. Weiss, Jr.. University of North Texas Press. 480 pp. Index. $27.95.
A historian separates fact from legend in this first scholarly biography of the flamboyant lawman whose motto was: "No man in the wrong can stand up against a fellow that's in the right and keeps on a-comin'." Weiss persuasively argues that McDonald, one of the legendary "four captains," was a transitional figure who spanned the wild and wooly days of frontier law enforcement and the modern era of criminal detection and investigation. More than 100 pages of notes and sources attest to the thoroughness of Weiss' research. []
