“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
