Críticas:

"In addition to providing detailed narratives of battles, Moore painstakingly documents the creation and dissolution of each Ranger unit of the period, making use of tables with rosters. . . . The racial and cultural diversity of early Texan forces may be the most significant contribution Moore has made to Texas Ranger historiography. Before his efforts, the concept of an Indian or Tejano Ranger during the Republic period was at most mentioned in passing and largely unknown to the general public and to many scholars."--Southwestern Historical Quarterly PRAISE FOR THE SAVAGE FRONTIER SERIES"An exhaustively researched study of the pervasive violence that confronted the newborn Texas Rangers even in colonial days."--Kent Biffle, Dallas Morning News"The volumes of Savage Frontier provide exciting action and accurate history. In addition, important genealogical material is given for anyone seeking the role of his or her ancestors in early Texas history."--Chuck Parsons, Texas Ranger Dispatch"Moore has done an extraordinary job of exhaustively researching his subject. I am not aware of any other book that investigates this period of Ranger history with such thoroughness as Savage Frontier."--Donaly Brice, author of The Great Comanche Raid "The early 1840s was one of the most turbulent chapters in the history of the lower Rio Grande valley. Readers familiar with earlier volumes in the Savage Frontier series will find much to admire in Steven Moore's eminently readable account."--Sam W. Haynes, author of Soldiers of Misfortune: The Somervell and Mier Expeditions "Moore's fourth and final volume of the Savage Frontier series contains many compelling battle narratives, but there is a wealth of social as well as military history lurking in these chapters. No one who is interested in the people and the problems of the Texas Republic can afford to leave these pages unread."--James E. Crisp, author of How Did Davy Die? And Why Do We Care So Much?
