    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

    As a Texas Peace Officer, I know a lot of what Jackson feels in many ways. He is frank and candid, while still being able to see the humor you must find in the constantly changing episodes, as well as the drama and sheer disgust with crime. Only a Ranger can see as much as he has, yet every peace officer worth their salt, struggles with the injustice that is always out there at work. Great book!

    Every man was once a boy. And every little boy has dreams, big dreams: dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty.

    Fabulous!! Eldredge hits a Home Run with this crucial work. Any of us who have struggled with what society has tried to force us to do and not asked us or allowed us to be the man God intended us to be, needs to read this awesome work.
    This book is timeless and will continute to help men return to the strong physical, spiritual and emotional leaders God created them to be.
