The Lone Star Ranger takes place in Texas, the Lone Star State, with the famous band of highly capable law enforcement officers known as Texas Rangers. The story follows the life of Buck Duane, son of a famous outlaw and a man who becomes an outlaw himself. Though an outlaw is not always a criminal, if the Rangers say he is an outlaw, it's just as bad – he's a hunted man. After killing a man in self-defense, Duane is forced to 'go on the dodge'. Duane turns up at an outlaw's hideout, still revolting at the idea of outlawry. Worse still, all the men he kills haunt him, for years. At the outlaw hideout, he meets a kidnapped, beautiful young woman and desires to see her free.
