Show Synopsis

In this adventure-filled memoir, Jackson--who was the inspiration for Nick Nolte's character in the movie "Extreme Prejudice"--recalls what it was like to be the Texas Ranger who responded when riots threatened, violence erupted, and criminals needed to be brought to justice at the Texas-Mexico border from 1966 to 1993.

Great Life Story

A friend who knew Joaquin and worked with him on occasion recommended this book which is based on real happenings. Of course, some of the names are changed to protect the real people.
It also gives an enlightening view of the what really took place during the settling of Texas.
