Review

“Long after Butch and Sundance left the country in 1901, outlaws rode on. The wild terrain of southeastern Utah remained their refuge, from the infamous Robbers Roost to today’s Canyonlands National Park, and beyond. In his biography of one such man, McCourt reveals how some became wanted, while others freely operated under the guise of respectability. The author does a super job of capturing the flavor of time and place, a grim enlightenment of hard times and consequences.”—Bette L. Stanton, historian and author of Where God Put the West

An excellent western....and all true. This book would make an excellent movie and I hope it is discovered as such. The beauty of the landscape where the action takes place can not be described, and I yearn to go back there. A truly exciting book to read, especially when you know it is a true story.

Last of the Robber's Roost Outlaws is a fun local history book. Based on interviews with Bill Tibbetts' family, friends, and neighbors, the author states that he has fictionalized some dialogue, but backs up his interpretations with solid history. As a frequent visitor to the Moab, Utah area, I was delighted to learn the inside scoop on its rugged past. Did I mention there are lots of photos, and copies of newspaper clippings from that period?

Tom did a great job writting this book. Im glad my grandpa finally got someone to put his stories into an amazing book. I don't really like reading, but once i picked this book up, i couldn't put it down. After listening to my grandpa for many years and hunting in the area where this whole book took place, its kind of crazy to see how it all comes together so perfect. Hope this turns into a movie someday.

This book is written about my grandfather Bill Tibbetts. He grew up in the west in my home town Moab, Utah.
He went through so much in those days and was accused of a crime he didn't do. He had to hide out in the wilderness from law enforcement until he could return to Moab and clear his name. My dad told these stories to me growing up and he finally had the story written by Tom McCourt who did an excellent job. I'm proud of my dad for perusing his dad's legacy! I know one day this book will be made into a movie!

Great book, and easy to read. It is even better because it is true. I liked it. It helped me a lot. Thank you. Having to put in a certain number of words is ridiculous.
