Outlaws and Lawmen of the West Vol. 1 by M. A. Macpherson & Eli MacLaren
He drifted into crime like a tumbleweed into a split-rail fence.......
The Wild West was a place where gritty, unshaven, pistol-twirling outlaws, born with a taste for dirt and danger, could leap on a horse or get from a galloping steed onto a speeding train without loss of limb or life. After the discovery of gold in California and parts north, and the Civil War, the West became home to settlers, gold-seekers and entrepreneurs, as well as highwaymen, killers and outlaws keen to make a quick buck and stay out of reach of the long arm of the law. Read all about the most famous oulaws and the detectives, rangers and lawmen who helped put a stop to them, one way or another.
