The Civil War is over, and settlers are moving west across the Great Plains to farm and hunt. Towns begin to spring up, but they are dangerous places to live: the settlers are violent, and the Plains Indians are angry that their lands have been invaded. As a U.S. marshal, your job is to keep the law. How will you manage? This new extended edition includes a map, a timeline, and a selection of exciting facts about frontier life.
