Old West Swindlers
This rollicking history covers oil and mining frauds, town-site frauds, land swindles, and railroad rackets of the Old West era, many of which occurred in Nevada, Arizona, and California. It even includes a "swindler's dictionary," defining such insider terms as ace, banco, country send, and wipe.
