Summary
The phrase "riding shotgun" was no game to the men who guarded Wells Fargo stagecoaches and trains in the Western frontier. Armed with sawed-off, double-barreled shotguns and an occasional revolver, these men guarded valuable cargo through lawless terrain--battling colorful thieves, vicious highwaymen, and robbers armed with explosives. Wells Fargo always had courageous men to protect its treasure, and their bravery and ingenuity make this book a thrilling read
