Gila City: Western Stories
Gambler Dandy Bob Roberts is the best-dressed denizen of Gila City, Arizona Territory. Old Man Duggan, the hostler at the livery barn, is the town drunk. Duggan will regale anyone with the price of a drink with his adventures fighting Apaches. Roberts would like to filch the assay report that's in the mail. The adventures of this unlikely duo, as one tries to save the mail and the other to steal it, is in the tradition of Mark Twain's Roughing It and Bret Harte's stories of mining camps.
