“Specifically written for this book are five of the most thrilling stories ever told about the old Wild West.  The Editor has chosen the four greatest daredeveils on horseback – men whose names are world-famous, whose deeds have inspired countless films and books - and he has invited skilled authors to write up the most famous of their adventures.  Between these covers you will find the real Buffalo Bill and Jesse James, Billy the Kid and Butch Cassidy.  They are there complete with their smoking pistols, whirling lariats, thundering stallions and wild cries.
The first story tells of the gruelling adventures of the group of pioneers who followed George Donner across the uncharted mountains to California.  How these gallant men and women, known as the Donner Party, struggled for life and dragged their weary bodies on through the deepening snow makes the most fantastic story of early America…

These five stories, illustrated by many black and white drawings are crammed full of hold-ups and battles and all the wildness of the West.  It is a book that no young reader can resist!”
