The phrase “riding shotgun” was no game to the men who guarded the Wells Fargo stagecoaches and trains on the Western frontier. Armed with double barrels and razor-sharp wits, these express messengers shepherded precious cargo through the nation’s most lawless terrain.
Shotguns and Stagecoaches introduces us to iconic personalities like “Chips” Hodgkins, known for his white mule and his ability to outrace his competitors, and Henry Johnson, the first Wells Fargo detective. The bad guys also get their due, among them infamous stagecoach robber Black Bart and Butch Cassidy’s legendary gang of train robbers.
Taking us from the Gold Rush to the rise of the railroads, here is a riveting tale of heroes, villains, and the West at its wildest.
