Since Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is one of my all time favorite movies, I really enjoyed reading this book about Etta Place--the Sundance Kid's long time lover. An enjoyable read.

Something about the historical fiction, getting some idea of what real-life characters were like.... I had to Google all the characters and obsess about them for a while after.
Excellent, clean prose - a few places where the editing was left in (!), so it feels self-published, but a good narrative with good characters that was hard to put down.
This book was based on true people who lived and rode with Butch Cassidy, Sundance and the rest of the Hole In The Wall Gang. It was a great story I really enjoyed it about the womamn who road with them, loved by both. She was known by a different name than that which she was born with because she killed a man and had to flee her home town. I loved that it was true and the story about this women and how she lived was really a ride! I highly recommend it.

A different take on the life of Etta Place, girlfriend of The Sundance Kid. Imagination fills in where little or nothing is known about her background but much of the book is based on available sources of the escapades of the Hole in the Wall Gang.
Great historical read. Really liked the characters and I couldn't help but picture them as the guys from alias smith and jones even tho they were the wrong characters!! To me Ben Murphy who played kid curry was sundance! Anyway. Great read!
Very interesting. Wonder how true it is but still a good adventure.
