Age of the Gunfighter celebrates the mythic Wild West that was described on the pages of the most popular entertainment of the time – the dime novel. Dime novels depicted an era populated with dance hall girls and proper Victorian women as well as outlaws and lawmen who followed the code of the West and settled disputes with gunfights.
