on Outlaws tales of bold robberies and daring escapes,
Mike Santos got an education in more than how to plan
a holdup. For as Mike grew up, Ben got the boy all
the books he could read. Roundy taught Michael to
hunt and track and other things. He was taught by
the best to cheat at cards, peel a safe and to work
over a brand. Doc Sawyer, once a veterinarian, taught
him something of medicine for both animals and men.
He guided Michael's reading as well, for the Doctor
was a cultivated man. And finally he learned to live
in the real world, the world outside of Robbers Roost.
