This is an excellent summation of an interesting life that everyone thinks they know all about. Mr. Jameson gives us a new look at the life and times of Butch Cassidy and tries to tear down some of the fallacies that have been given to us through books, magazine articles, and movies.

Well researched biography of Butch Cassidy. W.C. Jameson covers what is well known and excepted facts about Cassidy's life as well as theories surrounding Cassidy's death in Bolivia in 1908. A great read.
