The Wild West is a part of history that never stops fascinating us. A vast expanse of land free from the law and order of the rest of the country, the Old West was truly wild. The larger-than-life characters who ruled the West took full advantage of its lawlessness. Gambling, shootouts, highway robbery and heavy drinking were a way of life for the most famous of the outlaws. Can you guess which of these statements about outlaws of the Wild West are fact and which are fiction? Fact or Fiction?
