Express Rider

Express Rider

By Rod Johnson

This will be a real treat for those who are familiar with Rod Johnson's first book, “Another Man's Gold,” in which he told the story, in novel form, of one of his two legendary great-grandfathers – both of whom made lasting marks on the early frontier days history of the land now known as Montana. In “Express Rider” , the second book in Johnson's series we get a look into a little-known aspect of history in America's West. The express riders secretly carried gold, under contract to the larger gold-mining interests, from the gold fields to civilization. In the process they fought, outsmarted or simply eluded outlaws trying to steal the gold – across the west, from California to Nevada and Idaho country, as well as Montana, and Johnson's story about Bruce Jones, his great-grandfather, includes dramatic accounts of Jones' encounters with noted outlaw Henry Plummer and his gang in the Virginia City-Bannack diggings in Montana, as well as elsewhere in the West. 6x9, 160 pages.
