Indian eater Big Phil, the deadly rat game, gold bricks for sale and the pickled skull mystery are all as much a part of Colorado history as mining and railroading. Imaginative, ambitious people and hard frontier living combined to create a fertile setting for genuinely bizarre behavior. Short story format is used in this well-illustrated book.
