||A book by George Durham (as told to Clyde Wantland) “Taming the Nueces Strip” based on his own experiences. (1962).

||James Van Der Beek, Rachael Leigh Cook, Ashton Kutcher, Dylan McDermott, Tom Skerritt, Leonor Varela, Alfred Molina, Robert Patrick
||The area north of the Mexican border is bandit country and when a young man comes from the east by stage he is just in time to see his family murdered by a gang of cattle rustlers. He joins the newly formed Texas Rangers, and they go after the gang.
||A number of large scale shoot outs with a bit of “getting the band together” and boot camp stuff. Some pictures of maps, usually including the Rio Grande.
||It is a shame that what is actually some American history is so poorly portrayed, seemingly relying on the confusing set pieces to keep it going. Rotten Tomatoes gave it 2%. Despite the fact that the Rangers wore white arm bands you still could not tell who was winning. If you want to watch a western probably choose something else.
