The history of the world is made up of millions of stories. Some of them are big and some are small. But in most cases we find that history is changed when men and women make a decision to be a part of something that is greater than themselves.
When I’m writing nonfiction for young readers I’m looking for a story that is not only exciting but has a beginning, middle and an end. When I began researching Texas Rangers: Legendary Lawmen, I found enough stories to fill up 10 books. The hardest part really was trying to cull nearly 200 years of history down to one thirty two page picture book.
But who knows? There are plenty more Texas Ranger stories and maybe there will be another book some day.
