Information about Clayton Moore

The first episode explained how the Lone Ranger got his name and mission to clean up the West. As John Reid he had been one of six Texas Rangers bushwacked by the merciless Butch Cavendish Hole in the Wall Gang, but who had been saved from death by a kindly Indian named Tonto, who said, 'You only Ranger left. You Lone Ranger now.' By a tremendous coincidence, the Lone Ranger had saved the life of the selfsame Indian many years before. 'You kemo sabe,' said Tonto, 'it means "trusty scout". ' And stopping only to don his mask, the Lone Ranger set off to avenge his comrades and right wrongs in nineteenth century Texas accompanied by his Indian companion and his horse, Silver.
