Notorious in their own time, the late 19th century outlaws known as Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid gained new fame in the eponymous 1969 Oscar-winning film that starred Paul Newman and Robert Redford. In fact, as Thom Natch's breakthrough new double biography shows, the pair was even more colorful than their cinematic equivalents. Drawing on recently released Pinkerton files and new material about the possibility that they survived their alleged 1908 gun showdown deaths, he traces the lives of two frontier criminals who, perhaps unfortunately for them, outlived their era.
