Duane, Buck. Buck Duane was created by Zane Grey (Diamond Outfit, Sergeant King, Lassiter) and appeared in four serials in The Cavalier, All-Story Cavalier, and Argosy in 1914 and 1915, beginning with “Lone Star Rangers” (The Cavalier, May 9, 1914).

Buck Duane is a Wanted Man. Buckley Duane, proud scion of “old fighting stock of Texas,” is accused of every crime in the territory and is forced to become an outlaw. He has “an inherited fighting instinct, a driving intensity to kill,” and is a deadly outlaw, but thanks to Captain Jim MacNelly of the Texas Rangers Duane is pardoned and joins the Rangers.
