Here And There with Dave Marash

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. You’ve seen the moive and remember the close-ups.  But how did the real Butch Cassidy fit into the reality of the American West at the end of the 19th Century? Charles Leerhsen’s book Butch Cassidy: the True Story of an American Outlaw answers the question. Which means not just who was Butch and what was it like out west in 1890, but what was the law and what did it mean to be outside it? As we head to gifting season, this is the first of a series of 2020 books we like.
