- Probe the legends of the American frontier with an engineer’s eye.

Head back to the open range and the whistle stops of the Old West with this unique series that examines the tales and traditions of the frontier with an engineerÂ’s eye.
The Old West had whores a-plenty and rivers of homemade hooch. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. Most vices were still legal in the 19th century, and inventors could make a fortune creating new technologies to bring them to the masses. Back in the good old days, cocaine was found in soda pop, and the cure for alcoholism was said to be heroin! Thanks to technology, you didn't have to slump at the opium den, you could get high at home. Take a ""trip"" out West to the frontier of sex, drugs, and lock'n'load!
