Violence ignoted by the gliitter of gold. Men desperate to strike it rich. Families and farms forsaken in a wild rush West to stake a claim. String men and courageous women struggle across an untamed continent to gamble their last dollar in overnight boom towns or die bushwacked by outlaws. Some become valiant fighters in places where six-shooters keep the peace. No risk is too great, no depravity too low--when men catch gold fever and dream of quick millions, string whiskey and wanton women.
