Hitch up your wagon for a ride to the minin' territory of the Wild West!
Bunco DeSneer is salting the Spenawampum Mine in Gopher Gap with fake minerals. He hopes to snare rich Easterners looking for a good investment. He’s aided in his dirty work by Flora Fourflusher, a phony assayer, and Slats, a stupid stagecoach driver. Add in the other full-time resident Crazy Nanette, who searches relentlessly for her only child who disappeared years ago under an ice wagon, and its easy to see there are a lot of strange things happening in Gopher Gap!
When the suckers show up (including a waif, a judge, a newspaperwoman and the man-hungry Ottillie), Bunco wastes no time in fleecing them. But wait! Two unexpected visitors also arrive: Rocky Romantic, a mountain man and "wilderness poet," and Verlinda Springblossom, a beauty. She’s inherited the town from a distant relative Piute Pete. Verlinda doesn’t believe in "robbing the earth," so she intends to close down the mine and open a hummingbird sanctuary.
Naturally, Bunco will have none of this and the hilarity begins. Come see what happens when the dust all settles!
