n Robbers Roost Recollections, Pearl Baker sets down her memories of Robbers Roost, and in doing so captures the sounds and smells, the hard work, the cowboy lingo, and the excitement of ranch life while running cattle in the rugged southern Utah terrain that was home to Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch. When her father, Joe Biddlecome, set to ranching in the early decades of this century, his wife and two daughters came to the Roost to live and ride with im in his cattle business. Readers of Baker's Robbers Roost Recollections will relive their true-life experiences and gain a unique perspective of how one family helped settle a part of the American West. Robbers Roost Recollections is a most remarkable and much appreciated contribution to the growing body of historical information and biography available for students of American history in general, and the American western frontier in particular.
