In the Line of Duty: Reflections of a Texas Ranger Private
University of North Texas Press, 1995 - Biography & Autobiography - 184 pages
Growing up in Central Texas in the early part of this century as a young man from a poor farming family, Lewis Rigler decided that there must be something else out there. That "something else” turned out to be an appointment to the Texas Rangers. In a career spanning three decades, Ranger Rigler witnessed an era of great political and social turbulence and change in the state as well as within the Ranger force he had sworn to serve. His service involved investigations into kidnappings, murders, strike violence, burglary rings--all manner of cases. Some he solved; others remained elusive. Along the way, he saved a life or two; others, he could not.
