(from the manual)
"The Old West was a dangerous place, but it was even more so if you had to deal with outlaws. Our hero, Marshal James Anderson, doesn't have a lot of choice... they've burned down his home and attacked his family. If he wants to get his daughter back, he's got to go after her, and there's a whole passel of desperados in the way. He's going to need courage, perseverance, quick wits, and a lot of ammunition. Have you got the true grit you'll need to join him on the Payback Trail?"
