Punctuated by gunshots and posse hoofbeats, these true tales, many told for the first time, illustrate, in both words and rare photographs, perilous trails and dangerous men from a time gone forever. Profiling men such as stagecoach robber Shorty Harris, who just wanted to buy a restaurant with his loot and find some peace, and Black Bart, the most famous stagecoach robber ever, who robbed 28 stages in eight years and between robberies led the life of a society gentleman in San Francisco, this collection illustrates a desperate breed of fascinating characters who added their stories to the legends of the Old West.
