Real Dirt on America's Frontier Outlaws

The rebels and bandits of the American West—like Billy the Kid, Jesse James, and Butch Cassidy—make for thrilling tales of gunfights, heists, and outlaws. These figures have been romanticized and magnified by penny dreadfuls, dime novels, Wild West shows, and urban legends from the beginning. But is all of it true? Not necessarily!

Jim Motavalli returns with the real dirt on these outlaws, separating fact from fiction and showcasing some lesser- known lawless figures, such as Pearl Hart, Belle Starr, and the Bloody Espinosas. This side-by-side look at the legends and the evidence give us a real and more inclusive view of the old West and the dangerous characters who immortalized it.
