In 1875 Buck Morgan rode into Mason County with the Texas Rangers to quell the violence stirred up by the actions a vigilantly mob. The Hoo Doo (or bad luck) War erupted as suspected cattle rustlers were murdered by an angry mob.  Former ranger, Scott Cooley, gathers a gang to seek vengeance for the murders. 

Suspected of cattle rustling, Leta Derrick?s husband was murdered by the mob a year earlier. Now she is siding with the rogue ranger, Scott Cooley and refuses to help Buck Morgan stem the tide of violence.

The author weaves historical facts into the story of her fictional characters in a believable way. The women and men are strong and conservative just as most real Texans are. The problem begins when the settlers take the law into their own hands. A Ranger’s Trail made it easy to see how battle lines can be drawn before the implications of those lines are fully realized. The story is well written and is a cautionary tale. http://blessedmomfxs.wordpress.com/2012/03/31/a-rangers-trail/

I have enjoyed all the books in this series so far. They all have romance but that is more of a background to the historical part of the book. There are so many side stories as in all the books and lots of adventure. There are storms and cattle rustling but most of all is the strength of how much hate prejudice can drive into people hearts until they just don't see the truth.

After reading A Ranger’s Trail, I look forward to reading the final two books as soon as they are available. Buck Morgan is employed as a Texas Ranger, and his mission is to stop the violence. He has no idea how even his own family is caught in the middle of the horrible situation. I highly recommend the entire Morgan Family Series to anyone who loves historical/western fiction.

Watching the story unfold and reading about the actual facts of the war was interesting and seeing the outcome for Buck and Leta’s families. I would suggest you do read the first 3 books as it helps you understand the issues the Morgan family has faced up till this book. Great read and I look forward to book 5 in the series in April.

A tale about a Texas range war, the Mason county conflict. Shoot outs, revenge, twisted justice, a Texas style Romeo & Juliet and a plane good yarn. Ah shucks being a native of that area makes me real proud of Darlene Franklin for being such a great author. Get this book, you will be a better person for doing so. 5 Stars Posted on Goodreads, Shelfari, Amazon
