In this fast paced episode, learn about how it all happened. The unnamed Texas Ranger who battled it to the death with his brother, and the Desperados who wiped out the band of 6 Rangers. Learn how the Ranger was nursed from the brink of death by his lifelong friend, Tonto. Learn how he got his name. Learn how the Lone Ranger got Silver, why he wears a mask, where he gets is silver bullets, and more.
The story is highly compressed, and relies heavily on voice over, but it doesn’t take away from the action. One glaring point of difference is in the origin of how young Dan Reed came to be the sidekick of the masked man. Sure, he’s the nephew of the Lone Ranger, and the presentation here may match with the story in the movies, but Dan’s early appearances in the radio show are different. He seems to have come out west, fully a teenager, and straight from fine schooling to find his uncle.
