This is an excellent summation of an interesting life that everyone thinks they know all about. Mr. Jameson gives us a new look at the life and times of Butch Cassidy and tries to tear down some of the fallacies that have been given to us through books, magazine articles, and movies. One may have to accept the idea that maybe Cassidy did commit all of the crimes he is believed to have committed and that maybe, just maybe, he was not killed by the Bolivian army. Jameson gives a very good overview of Cassidy's early life and the possible reasons for his turning to life of crime. He traces the events or crimes that Cassidy may or may not have been involved with and his move to South America to get away from the pursuit of the Pinkerton Agency. It seems his attempts to go straight were impaired by being blamed for robberies and activities that he was not a part of at the time. Of course this period ends with a shoot out with the Bolivian army that most of us have seen in the movie. Jameson gives a review of the evidence that maybe Cassidy survived the shoot out. Evidence is there that possible he returned to the United States but there is no proof that it happened. It is left to the reader to read the evidence and to decide for themselves what they want to believe. A very interesting and captivating biography.Was this review helpful?
