“Saga of a Texas Ranger,”
the first in a series of four exciting historical westerns by Jeffery Robenalt highlighting the fabled history of the Texas Rangers from 1840 until the aftermath of the Civil War, is the story of sixteen year-old Caleb McAdams who, seeking revenge after his family is massacred during the Great Comanche Raid of 1840, joins Jack Hays and the Texas Rangers at the Battle of Plum Creek. For the next six years, until the dawn of the war with Mexico, Caleb rides with Hays and his sidekick and fellow scout, Bigfoot Wallace, through some of the most memorable events in the history of the fabled Texas Rangers; from savage encounters with the Comanches on the Upper Colorado and the legendary fight at Walker Creek, to pitched battles against Mexican troops at Salado Creek and the infamous border town of Mier. Through it all, Caleb struggles to survive a deadly feud with the Pate brothers while coming to grips with his love for two women: the lovely and driven Wanda Cooper, who is torn between her love for Caleb and a life-long desire to further her education in New Orleans, and the beautiful and ambitious Lucinda Vaca, the daughter of Caleb’s ranching partner, who intends to take advantage of Wanda’s absence to win Caleb and help him build the thousands of acres he inherited from his father into one the finest ranches in Texas.
