This article is about the fictional Western character. The free download of mills and boon novels in pdf format has been called an enduring icon of American culture.
1949 to 1957, comic books, and several movies. While details differ, the basic story of the origin of the Lone Ranger is the same in most versions of the franchise. Bartholomew “Butch” Cavendish is betrayed by a civilian guide named Collins and is ambushed in a canyon named Bryant’s Gap. Tonto stumbles onto the scene and discovers one ranger is barely alive, and he nurses the man back to health.
In some versions, Tonto recognizes the lone survivor as the man who saved his life when they both were children. Among the Rangers killed was the survivor’s older brother, Daniel Reid, who was a captain in the Texas Rangers and the leader of the ambushed group. To aid in the deception, Tonto digs a sixth grave and places at its head a cross bearing Reid’s name so that Cavendish and his gang would believe that all of the Rangers had been killed. In many versions Reid continues fighting for justice as The Lone Ranger even after the Cavendish gang is captured.
