Item description for The Ranger and the Green Derby: Historical Western (Clason Westerns) by Dick Clason...
WESTERN / TEXAS HISTORY / LAW ENFORCEMENT.
Based on the historic Battle of Lost Valley in Texas, the story captures the early Western times with suspense, adventure, and justice.Some no-good outlaws and cattle rustlers set up an ambush to wipe out the Texas Rangers and cowboy Clay Strong.
The leader of the outlaws, Ike McGrath, told his gang he wore a green derby because the green stands for his Irish blood and the red feather in it for his Kiowa blood . . . and no one lives laughing at his hat. That's why it was common to hear him say: "I guess today is killing day around here." And many times, it was.
