  Reviews for Savage Frontier, Vol. I

"I'm impatiently awaiting the second volume of an exhaustively researched study of the pervasive violence that confronted the newborn Texas Rangers even in colonial days... Seasoned scholars of Texas Ranger rosters and raids by tribesmen will find new material."
—Kent Biffle, The Dallas Morning News, October 20, 2002

"The contents are masterfully and chronologically organized into a work that explains the big picture of what was happening during the Texas Revolution. Every major battle is mentioned, along with the role played by the Ranging Corps. This is not a rehash of old 1890 memories, although some recollection snippets are included. Above all, this is fresh material that most people have not seen. Savage Frontier belongs in every Texian library."
—James Gray, Bookshelf review for The Alamo Society
