From 1870, when the first robbery occurred on the Central Pacific Railroad, down to 1933, when a lone bandit tried to hold up the crack Sunset Limited, millions of dollars in gold, currency and valuables were stolen in railroad robberies. As both historian and amateur criminologist, Eugene B. Block has researched this, the gaudiest period in the annals of the West, and produced startling new facts about such legendary figures as the Dalton brothers and the notorious "Wild Bunch," as well as many less well-known barons of banditry whose careers were fully as thrilling and colorful as their more fabled counterparts
