Summary, etc.:
Through the gold rush and the early days of delivery with horses and saddlebags, to the heyday of stagecoaches and huge shipments of gold, and finally to the rise of the railroad and the robbers who concocted unheard-of schemes to loot trains, Wells Fargo always had courageous men to protect its treasure. The phrase "riding shotgun" was no teenage game to the men who guarded the stagecoaches and trains of the frontier. Armed with sawed-off, double-barreled shotguns and an occasional revolver, these express messengers guarded valuable cargo through lawless terrain. they were tough, fighting men who risked their lives every time they clibed into the front boot of a concord coach. Boessenecker tells the stories of soon-to-be-iconic personalities--and their enemies, such as Black Bart, the most infamous stagecoach robber of all time, and butch Cassidy's gang, America's most legendary train robbers.
