Bill Betenson is the great-nephew of Butch Cassidy and now, after 100 years he reveals the outlaw's true story. Cassidy rode the untamed frontiers in the United States and South America, and one of the fascinations with him is that so many unanswered questions about his life still remain. Betenson presents reasoned interpretations to such questions as "Which crimes did Butch commit?" "Which crimes did he help plan?" "Which outlaws did he work with?" "Did he die in South America?" and "Who masqueraded as Butch Cassidy?" A well-documented and entertaining read complete with numerous photographs of interest. As new, unread copy in dust jacket.
