Clare Sieffert was born in 1951. She is, therefore, too young to have grown up with the original radio version of The Lone Ranger. And she was only 1-3 years old during John Hart's run as the Masked Man. So, to her, for most of her life, Clayton Moore was the only true Lone Ranger, and she can't remember a time when she didn't love him. Since 2007 the author has collected and studied about 2,000 of the radio episodes, broadcast between 1938 and 1954. Unfortunately, the first 775 episodes, broadcast between 1933 and 1938, before the show went national, were not recorded. This means that Clare has been able to listen repeatedly to a majority of the approximately 2,500 episodes that were recorded. While doing so, the author developed a great admiration and affection for Brace Beemer's portrayal of the Masked Man. She has become one of the foremost experts on the content of the radio episodes, the 221 television episodes, and the two Moore/Silverheels theatrical films. Clare can tell you whether what you think happened on The Lone Ranger, actually did. In 2006 Clare went online, in search of fellow travelers, and found people who shared her enthusiasm on The Lone Ranger Forum: http: //thecaveboard.yuku.com/forums/3/t/LONE-RANGER-FRONTIER.html Over the next few years, she posted a number of essays on all sorts of topics relating to The Lone Ranger and Tonto. She also wrote a series of reviews and critiques of some of the television episodes. Some of these essays and reviews have been collected in this book. In recognition of all the verbiage Clare contributed to the forum, it's founders and moderators gave her the title, The Lady Ranger. She is very proud of her nickname, and this unexpected honor.
