More thrilling than any Wild West film, this is the true story of the drivers and operators of the Cheyenne and Black Hills stage coach company. During one of the most important periods of the history of Wyoming, Montana, and the Dakotas, brave men and intrepid passengers faced harsh weather, bad roads, Indians, and a seemingly endless parade of desperate "road agents" (robbers). Masterfully researched and written by Wyoming's State Historian in 1949, no fan of the Old West will want to miss this classic work. It is full of humorous and painful stories, as well as a look into a world long gone. Famous western characters like Buffalo Bill, Wild Bill Hickok, Judge William L. Kuykendall, Lonesome Charley Reynolds, General George Crook, and George Armstrong Custer were all part of the time and place. Every memoir of the American West provides us with another view of the westward migration that changed the country forever.
