Steve Bartholomew

Author Steve Bartholomewabout this book: I have long been fascinated by the story of Charles Boles, aka Black Bart. He robbed twenty eight stagecoaches, that we know about. He never shot anyone: in fact he used an unloaded gun. He was finally caught, confessed, and went to prison for only one robbery. When he was released he promptly disappeared from view, never to be seen again. No one is really sure about what happened to his money; he always dressed in the height of fashion and for awhile consorted with the best people at City Hall.

This book relates a tale of what I imagine about where Boles might have gone and what he might have done after he disappeared. Why did he hate Wells Fargo so much? And why didn't he ever ride a horse? Where did all his money go, and did he ever find peace at last? This book is not so much about history as it is about Black Bart's character. Who was it that said history is bunk?
