    When his picture appeared on the cover of Texas Monthly, Joaquin Jackson became the icon of the modern Texas Rangers. Nick Nolte modeled his character on him in the movie Extreme Prejudice. Jackson even had a speaking part of his own in The Good Old Boys with Tommy Lee Jones. But the role that Jackson has always played the best is that of the man who wears the silver badge cut from a Mexican cinco peso coin, a working Texas Ranger.

    Overall

    One hell of a book that leaves you wanting to hear more of his stories; being from Texas I have visited many of the areas he mentions in his book. I found myself engulfed with his adventures. Last spring we drove out to west Texas to enjoy the flowing colors of the rugged area. Not knowing the content of this new book beforehand, I downloaded the book. Not only did I enjoy listing to the adventures of Ranger Jackson, but our entire group wanted to hear him tell his true life stories as we drove back to Houston. The stories are true and the ending is sad. I found myself wanting to hear more of the life and times of Ranger Jackson. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what it is like to be a Texas Ranger.
