A gripping, true tale about a 1909 posse chase across more than 500 miles of harsh desert wilderness for Willie Boy, a local Paiute Indian who killed the father of a girl he loved so he could run off with her. The story became highly publicized by reporters in the area, and turned into a large chase. The end of the story of this local legend is disputed, with an Indian version and the version of the white-man. This western epic inspired the 1969 film starring Robert Redford called Tell Them Willie Boy is Here.

Review:

Far more authentic and exciting than most Western novels and movies.... For those who see cultural integration as a simple matter of moving people into new surroundings and situations, Willie Boy should be required reading. --Ferol Egan, San Francisco Examiner
