Gunsmoke: The Eighth Season – Volume 2

As most of you have read about, the American Frontier was not an easy place to live. There were Indians, diseases, poor hygiene, and a lot of lawlessness. What allowed many to sleep soundly at night were lawmen. Whether they were sheriffs or U.S. Marshals the men who wore the badges were the real heroes and men of courage. For Dodge City in Kansas that man was Matt Dillon (played by James Arness). With little to no help Matt Dillon attempted to keep law and order in this border city.
