This bundled product contains everything you need for your unit on Outlaws and Lawmen in the Old West. In the early days of western settlement, towns had small populations and law enforcement was almost non-existent. In most communities, this was not a problem. However, there were exceptions: it was not unusual for a small mining camp to turn into an unruly settlement and an unruly settlement to become a lawless town. It was an era known for stagecoach and bank robberies; gunfights and cattle rustling.

This bundle includes my three Outlaws and Lawmen of the Wild West products:

• Wild West Careers: Outlaws and Lawmen of the Wild West ($5.00 value)
