Publisher's Summary

Many well-read students, historians, and loyal aficionados of Texas Ranger lore know the name of Texas Ranger Captain Frank Jones (1856-1893), who died on the Texas-Mexico border in a shootout with Mexican rustlers. In Six-Shooters and Shifting Sands, Bob Alexander has now penned the first full-length biography of this important 19th-century Texas Ranger. Frank Jones' law enforcing life was anything but boring. Not only would he find himself dodging bullets and returning fire, but those Rangers under his supervision would also experience gunplay. Of all the Texas Ranger companies, Company D contributed the highest number of on-duty deaths within Texas Ranger ranks.

The book is published by University of North Texas Press.

"For those fascinated by the Old West, this book is the true story." (Rick Miller, author of award-winning Texas Ranger John B. Jones and the Frontier Battalion, 1874-188)

"This is a solid book that will appeal to any fan of Wild West history." (True West)

“Once again exceptional historian and story teller Bob Alexander has delved into the forgotten archives and emerged with Texas Ranger Frank Jones... This is an unvarnished view of a man who rightfully should be one of the great captains of Ranger history.” (David Johnson, author of John Ringo, King of the Cowboys and The Mason County “Hoo Doo” War, 1874-1902)

boring!!

I am enthralled with historical nonfiction. This book was extremely boring. He just kept bringing up names that nobody (unless u studied TX Rangers) would know.
