A PRIVATE IN THE TEXAS RANGERS
A. T. Miller of Company B, Frontier Battalion
John Miller Morris
This gritty, day-to-day portrayal, written by Private A. T.
Miller, yields a complex vision of the passing West and its
lawmen. Three diaries, excerpted and annotated by Miller's
great-grandson, Morris, provide a tale of true crime and pun-
ishment set against the scenic backdrops of the Rolling
Plains, the Panhandle, and Old Greer empires. Miller's daily
journal entries bring to life law and order, while highlighting
the long periods of effort and sometimes fruitless activity
preceding the capture of an outlaw. $24.95

origin community's quest for educational equality, marked
by strikes, boycotts, rallies, and litigation during this era.
