Schofield .45, with which he had earned a reputation as a gunfighter and the
marshal of Walker, a railhead town back in Kansas, rested in the bottom of the

they visited. After two weeks, the small mining settlements blended into one
another. McClellan's Cut, Golden Valley, El Dorado, nameless towns known only
