"The rangers were occupied largely with border police duties or its equivalent service, and many delinquents were apprehended by them and brought to justice or otherwise exterminated. Bell has written more minutely upon the "seamy side" of society than any other Californian author, and there is a fascination about his book. From the long lists of murderous villains, thieving scoundrels, and other unholy characters, it would appear that the polite society of the south in those days was neither large nor extensive." [Cowan II, p. 44]
