F or as long as he can remember, Dusty McFarland has wanted to become a Texas Ranger, to follow in the footsteps of his father, Ranger Captain Laughlin McFarland. Now that he's turned eighteen, Dusty achieves that goal and, with his mother's blessings, is sworn in as a ranger. His father reminds him that his duties are to love the great state of Texas and to protect her with his life. Dusty understands the dangers and knows that each gunfight could be his last.
From the moment Dusty receives his star, he and his father do their best to uphold the law by tracking criminals and bringing them to justice. Their adventures include finding Dusty's blood brother, Tony, and trying to clear him of rustling and murder charges. They meet up with T-Bone, a dimwitted giant of a man who is teamed with the ruthless Billy Driskell. They hunt now El Diablo, a psychotic loner who kills and rapes for pleasure.
The third novel in a trilogy celebrating the tradition and legacy of the Texas Rangers, Ranger Winds: The Last Ride shows how the Rangers lived a life with demands that only a few good men could meet.
