Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Utah's exciting and little-known outlaw history comes alive in this robust book. Veteran author (35 books and counting) Michael Rutter tracks rustlers, robbers, and renegades through the generally peaceable Beehive State. His rogue's gallery is impressive, including the likes of Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Kid Curry, Gunplay Maxwell, and several members of the Wild Bunch Gang.

Read an Excerpt

From "The Castle Gate Payroll Robbery"
As Butch Cassidy grabbed the reins of his horse, Mr. E. L. Carpenter ran up the stairs yelling "Robbers! Robbers!" Someone fired a rifle. The sound of the report, the commotion that yelling "Robbers" created, and the loitering miners all around made Butch's normally well-trained horse nervous. When Butch tossed another moneybag over his horse's head to Elzy Lay, the horse spooked, pulled away, and bolted.
For a moment, Butch looked after his mount. There he was, alone, horseless and stunned, with his gun holstered and a large bag of Castle Gate gold in one hand. He ran for his frightened mount. Quick-thinking Elzy headed off the mare and after several futile tries, managed to grab the reins and bring the gray, named Babe, back to Butch. Butch snatched the reins and, still holding the heavy bag of gold in one hand, managed to mount the tall, bareback horse. Babe reared up several times. Elzy spurred his horse and Babe followed him down the narrow way.

From "Dart Isom"
Perhaps it takes an outlaw to catch an outlaw. No one is sure how Deputy Sheriff Joe Philbrick got the drop on the wily Isom, but he did. Likely, Dart was on his own turf and had his guard down. No lawman had dared come into the Hole before. Dart couldn't argue with Deputy Joe's Colt six-gun. Joe tied Dart up, put him in his buckboard, and headed back to Rock Springs.
A day out of town, on a steep section of rough road, the wagon slid off the track and tumbled down the gully. Isom managed to jump free as the buckboard flipped. The deputy wasn't so lucky. Joe Philbrick was seriously hurt in the accident and pinned under the buckboard. Isom managed to free his tied hands and pry the wagon off the injured man with a pole. He drug Joe free and tended to the man's injuries to the best of his abilities, but he knew that Philbrick needed more help than he could give him. Nearly killing the poor horses, he got Joe to the Rock Springs doctor. Then he stopped, had a stiff drink, and turned himself in to the Rock Springs sheriff.
