Notes

First Yale University Press edition, which was revised and updated by Gillett and the editor, to include additional historical photos which did not appear in the 1921 privately-printed first. Gillett's memoir is widely considered to be one of the best personal accounts of the Texas Rangers ever written. Decidedly uncommon in the original dust jacket.
