Nice quick read. Good historical overview of the women that ran with the Wild Bunch. Recommended

Not exactly a meticulously researched volume on the women in the West. Lots of speculation. However, it was very readable and interesting. I liked that the author tried to make the subjects as human as possible. It's so strange to me that these women lived in a West that was so raw and untamed little more than a century ago. Good, quick read.

Good quick read. Obviously not a lot of info on the subject so the author had to work to piece together some interesting stories, but nice to get at least a glimpse into the wild bunch women

I liked this book to a point. I wish there was more information on Josie Bassett. And while as far as I know accurate, it felt a bit stiff.

It's a nice book. I don't know if I had heard about the Wild Bunch Gang before, although I have heard of the members. (Butch Cassidy, Sundance Kid, etc)

This book talks about the women in their lives, both wives, lovers and women who helped them. It was interesting to read about the lives of women in the past in this area of the country.

Sticklers of facts be warned! There is quite a bit of supposition in this book, I think in order to bring some 'humanity' to the facts. In my personal opinion it

This was a nice over view of the women beside the men. It makes me want to look into all of thier lives even more. I did feel at time that the author read into what woman would most likely do, he might be right but I'm not sure he was drawing from an educated guess but more a sterotype.
Over all a good "starter" book and glad ot add it to my colleciton of women in history books.

My mom gave me the book for a quick read. Much of the content was based off legends and not facts so I didn't get much historical knowledge from this book. However, I knew nothing about the Wild Bunch (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) so I found it interesting, some of the stories about the Wild West and how people lived in the late 1800s to early 1900s.

I was pretty disappointed with this book and the information in it. There is way to much speculation and not nearly enough fact. So many of the sentences resembled, "If the story is true..." The author handed out theory after theory on these women, but seems not much is really known, or at least wrangled up by this author.

I read this on vacation in Wyoming after picking it up at the Jim Gatchell Museum in Buffalo. It was a quick read and rather entertaining. I learned a little bit about the Wild Bunch members like Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid. Many of these women lived very hard and sad lives, but they make for interesting stories.

Those feisty, wild west women. Love their rugged tales!

This book serves as a basic overview that is quick to read but not very in-depth. I was disappointing by the lack of factual evidence cited and by the amount of speculation. There are better titles out there on this subject matter.

Interesting subject matter, except next to nothing is known about some of the women. Not great writing and kind of redundant.

Too much speculation and barely any facts or quotes. How do you know what they were thinking at that time?
