The American frontier in its early days was a rough place where only the tough survived. Gold and cattle were king, and many took up stealing the former and rustling the latter. Stage coaches and trains presented themselves for the taking. Billy the Kid, the Daltons, Jesse James, the Reno Brothers and many more all made their names in bandit lore, ending their days at the noose end of a rope or the wrong end of a lawman's bullet. With 16 b/w photographs, 5 maps.
