Captain John R. Hughes: Lone Star Ranger

capt_john_hughesThe Texas Rangers have more to offer than just Jack Hays.

A ranger who continued his tradition in the late 19th- and early 20th-centuries was John R. Hughes. Only now do we have a complete biography on him, wonderfully written by Chuck Parsons. Hughes joined the Frontier Battalion in 1887 and became the force’s greatest tracker, trailing fugitives like a bloodhound.
