From the publisher:
Bill Betenson is the great-grandson of Butch Cassidy's younger sister Lula Parker Betenson who wrote Butch Cassidy, My Brother published in 1975. Bill inherited not only Lula's family archives but also her interest in setting the record straight. His quest for answers has been a lifelong pursuit which has led him from dusty jail basements in the American West to Butch's ranch in Argentina and beyond. He's often said, "If I had to pick an outlaw to be related to, I would pick Butch." He says, "I've delayed writing this book for too long; the story is no longer a huge family embarrassment like it was for great-grandma Lula's generation. It's time I put what I know on paper."

Price: $350.00
