About this product
- DescriptionCalifornia was the mining centre of the West for half a century. Wherever precious minerals were found, road agents appeared to mine the roads of treasure being shipped out and payrolls being shipped in. The first recorded robbery of a stagecoach occurred in 1856, and the last in 1913. Over that period there were 457 stagecoach robberies, many with special characteristics such as a claim the robbers were Confederate soldiers, a murder, a gun battle, or a thrilling pursuit and capture. Surprisingly, there were many robberies in which the perpetrator remained unkwn or in which was so little stolen the robber was t even sought out. This book gives all the details of those robberies taken from the contemporary newspapers and from a variety of other sources.
