Once Upon A Time in Stinking Sands

You missed the last two levels:

Without Forgiveness:

- American Civil War: Look inside the tent on the left when you arrive at the
camp and get ambushed by numerous Indians.

- Robert Ford: After the gunfight at the camp you’ll find a lake. Look for a
fallen log along the shore of the lake with a hat at the end of it.

- Cole Younger: Get to the top of the hill. You’ll then have a left path and
a right path. The left path leads down along a ledge. Look for the tree
growing in the middle of the rock path with orange leaves. There’s a small
cave just to the right of that tree with the hat inside.

- Frank James: Blow up Frank James’s cabin, then cross the bridge. Look to the
right for a pile of fire wood. The hat’s sitting on the wood.

- Wild West Shows: Enter the cave and move along until you’re at the big
chamber. There’s a campfire on the left and a book.

The Good, The Bad and The Dead:

- Dwight Eisenhower: When the shotgunner breaks down the door and appears in the house on the right, take him out and then proceed to the second story to find the nugget in a dresser.

- Roscoe “Bob” Bryant: After you pass through the falling apart barn, go to the left and forward a bit down the path to come to a building with a torch burning outside of it. Open the door and the nugget will be on the bar inside.

- The Sundance Kid: This can be located in the building directly across from the J.S. Swerners building on the second floor. When you enter the building, an ambush will begin outside.

- Wild West Ghost Towns: Just before you reach the gates to the cemetery, there will be a building on the right with an ammo crate in it. The nugget will be on the ground right beside it.
