When a modern-day construction crew unearths skeletal remains beneath a gigantic boulder they discover a saddle and a Winchester, "One of One Thousand" rifle—still intact—clutched in the desiccated bones of what was once a man’s hand.
This story traces the history and remarkable journey of the rifle through the eight people who owned it and their adventures in the old west in 1873.
