Dr. Michael Reed traveled the West selling his famous snake oil restorative. He met with trouble in southern Colorado. Three townspeople were accidentally poisoned by the concoction, and one of them died. He was tried and hanged. His caravan was looted and left on the outskirts of town to rot. Now, children often dare each other to visit the site where they can see Dr. Mike and his dog selling his so-called medicine.
