Arizona Rangers

AZ rangers Following in the footsteps of the famous Texas Rangers, Arizona created an Arizona Rangers team of its own in 1901.  Depending on which book you read these folks were honorable heroes always, or they were a mixture of honorable heroes and former criminals and ongoing criminals who also performed mostly honorably and well as Rangers when the situation called for it.

As part of its Images of America series, Arcadia Publishing produced Arizona Rangers, written by M. David  DeSoucy.  This entertaining chronicle is rampant with photos from the archives of Arizona historical associations and organizations, and chronicles the various tales of what the Arizona Rangers accomplished from their 1901 launch until the book’s publication in 2008.  An easy, memorable and entertaining read.
