The Outlaw Trail: A History of Butch Cassidy & His Wild Bunch by Charles Kelly
"An excellent history of the lives and exploits of the better known outlaws of the Northwest." -- Ramon Adams, Six-Guns and Saddle Leather.
"Among the finest books published on outlaws of the Great Basin country." -- Dan L. Thrapp, Encyclopedia of Frontier Biography
The Wild Bunch, the confederation of western outlaws headed by Butch Cassidy, found sanctuary on the rugged Outlaw Trail. Stretching across Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico, this trail offered desert and mountain hideouts to bandits and cowboys. The almost inaccessible Hole-in-the-Wall in Wyoming was a station on the Outlaw Trail well known to Butch Cassidy. To the south, in Utah was the inhospitable Robbers' Roost, where Butch and his friends camped in 1897 after a robbery at Castle Dale.
Charles Kelly recreates the mean and magnificent places frequented by the Wild Bunch and a slew of lesser outlaws. At the same time, he bring Butch Cassidy to life, traces his criminal apprenticeship and meeting with the Sundance Kid, and masterfully describes the exploits of the Wild Bunch.
