Vigilante Days And Ways brings to life dramatic scenes of Montana in the 1860s when it was attractive to most of its newest residents only for the gold that lay waiting to be scooped from its streams. Nathaniel Langford depicts nightriders in full gallop on the trail of outlaws, and "trials" and executions that were hastily arranged and conducted. All the action Langford saw and heard he tells in a meaty Victorian prose style that leaves no doubt of its authenticity and substance. The Montana landscape exerts an ever-present influence on Langford's narrative. He recognizes and describes the beauty as well as the hazards of the mountains, gulches, plains, rivers, and streams in all seasons and their varied effects on newcomers to the territory. Long out of print, this new edition of a western classic will be enthusiastically welcomed by a whole new generation of readers and fans of the old west as it really was, the home of the famous and the infamous, the colorful and the notorious, the good and the bad.
The result, for the instant, upon the colonel is described by himself as being very peculiar. He said he could count each particular hair in his head, and that it felt like the quill of a porcupine. Not enjoying the situation, he made a quick movement, getting his head out of range of Gallagher's revolver, and springing to his feet, in an instant was behind the bar, where "Red" was standing. Sanders seized the shot-gun which was used by Yager in admitting his guests in the night, and levelled it across the bar directly at Gallagher.
