In separating fact from fiction about Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (Robert Leroy Parker and Harry Longabaugh), the author tells a story every bit as interesting as the Hollywood films about the outlaws. And when you have a well-told tale read in an engaging manner, you have a most enjoyable audio experience. Narrator James C. Lewis gives a steady and, at times, spirited reading but eschews the laconic Texas drawl. The outlaws’ life stories are textured, with the author taking side trips into other aspects of Western and American history such as the history of train robberies and the birth of the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Each chapter opens with a verse from a popular song or poem from the period. One wishes the producers had used a singer and musician for those brief passages. In all, though, the book is a fun and informative listen. R.C.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2013]
