Into the West came many men. Some were good men and some were bad men. Some were good men with some bad in them. And some were bad men with some good in them. This is the story of two pretty good bad men: Hannibal Heyes
and Kid Curry
Together these gentlemen substantially altered the course of America's frontier. They did a lot to change railroad schedules, too. And in all the trains and banks they robbed they never shot anyone. This made our two latter-day Robin Hoods very popular with everyone but the railroads and the banks. Because, unlike Robin Hood, Hannibal Heyes
and Kid Curry
robbed from the rich and kept the money for themselves. It was a good life.
But times were changing. Safes were getting better, posses were getting bigger, sheriffs were getting smarter. And modern communications made it only a matter of time until they would be captured and maybe even killed.
When Heyes and Curry are handed an amnesty paper by a little old lady they decide to seek some advice. In the end they are granted a provisional amnesty provided they can stay out of trouble for twelve months.
So for the following year the West's two most wanted men would lead model lives. Lives of temperance, moderation, tranquility. Hannibal Heyes and Kid Curry would cease to exist. In their places would ride two men of peace ... Alias Smith and Jones
