The Sundown Riders

Between Kansas City and Montana Territory were a thousand ways to die—and a few bold men who would never turn back.

Miners dug for fortunes. Soldiers died on open plains. And a few brave men drove the wooden freight wagons into the wild land. Master Western novelist Ralph Compton tells the real story of the tough-as-leather men who carried supplies, guns and gold into the untamed frontier.
