You can also meet the cowboys who lived their hard, lonely lives driving cattle across vast distances, and the outlaws who chose to live by their guns rather than by more honest means. In this book, the atmosphere of the Wild West is vividly captured, with photographs from the times, images from the movies and the real facts.
