It's anything goes for the Rocky Mountain Stage Company: From a
"gift" box containing a rattle snake, cut harnesses, and "Indian" raids on
way stations to importing a lighter "toy baby carriage" of a coach and
hiring Calamity Jane, the "best stage driver in the West"--anything to stop
the Overland with its dependable Concord from securing a mail franchise by
being the first stage to Denver. But Flip has more than the franchise on
his mind. He hopes to collect on a winning bet--a kiss from Calamity.(bj)
