A fictionalized account of the life of Robert Leroy Parker, the man who became the legendary Butch Cassidy
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Whatever became of Robert Leroy Parker, son of a dirt-farmer father and Mormon mother? Was Gert's husband, Bill, the same William T. Phillips who authored the 1935 manuscript from which this book takes its title? Who was the fellow Mary Boyd called George and by whom she had a child? Lyon believes that all these men and several others were among the multiple identities adopted at one time or another by that lovable felon Butch Cassidy, legendary sidekick of the Sundance Kid and leader of what was called--among other things--the Hole in the Wall Gang and the Wild Bunch. In her fictional account of Cassidy's career, based on Phillips' manuscript and other research, Lyon makes a pretty convincing case. More than that, she tells an entertaining tale, which begins with Butch (or Bill or George) as an older man bored with the present, displeased with the past, and determined to see the love of his life, Mary Boyd, one more time. Satisfying historical fiction. Budd ArthurReview:
