Also see . . . Cheyenne-Deadwood Stage - Wyoming Tales and Trails. Although not as significant as the Overland Stage, probably no stage line has attracted more attention than the Deadwood Stage, more properly, the Cheyenne and Blackhills Stage and Express Line. The fame of the line and of Deadwood itself, was assured by being early featured in Edward L. Wheeler's Deadwood Dick series of half-dime novels and Col. Cody's Wild West show.
