Publisher Comments:

Meet the most notorious Utahns who ever lived

Massacres, mayhem, and mischief fill the pages of Outlaw Tales of Utah. Meet the Wild Bunch, outlaws who sought refuge between heists hanging out and hiding out in Utah. Butch Cassidy, its leader, once paid a farmers mortgage and then robbed a banker to get the money back. The Sundance Kid gained a reputation as a gunfighter—without firing a shot. Etta Place, first lady of the Wild Bunch, is a mystery we know almost nothing about—or do we? Get to know other shady Utah characters, from Bible-reading wife and mother Elizabeth Bassett, who stole cattle at night, to former-slave-turned-rustler Isom Dart, who saved the life of the deputy who arrested him—and was set free.

 
All this and more is yours for the reading in Outlaw Tales of Utah, which introduces sixteen of the most dramatic events, and the most daring and despicable desperados, in the history of the Beehive State.

Book News Annotation:

The outlaw history of Utah has become an integral part of American Western folklore and heritage. Rutter, author of Fun with the Family Utah, tells the stories of Utah's most interesting and famous outlaws and cut-throats drawing from both historical record and local folklore to flesh out such legends as Butch Cassidy, The Sundance Kid, The Wild Bunch, and Elizabeth Bassett. Appealing to those interested in Utah history and the Wild West, this is the second edition of a book first published in 2002. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:
