Annotation Los Angeles in the mid-nineteenth century was a small, Spanish-American town with a big problem: organized gangs of outlaws controlled the territory through raids, bribes, and violence. In response, an all-volunteer militia called the Los Angeles Rangers was formed to restore law and order. In this adventurous, first-person account, ranger Major Horace Bell recalls a criminal cast of characters and the troop members who brought them to justice. Californiana collection.
