"This book is a well-reasoned, meticulously-documented, much needed revision of a popular myth which, unfortunately, has long been accepted as gospel, particularly among Montana's 'law 'n order' crowd."
Relates the stories of twenty-one lynchings in Gold-Rush Montana. These stories provide several surprising revelations about the vigilantes.
