James L. Rickardabout this book: The Forest Gump of the West is at it again! This time Charlie Hobbs rubs shoulders with John Wayne, Wyatt Earp, and Butch Cassidy. After barrelling through the Old West as both a lawman and an outlaw, Charlie served some time in prison before heading East to run a dry-goods store and then become a journalist investigating myths and legends of the Old West.
Am I qualified for this? Well, last month I found out I'm related to both Butch Cassidy and Wyatt Earp. If I go to Old Tombstone and get in for free, I'll let you know. Additionally, my grandfather was born in 1870. So, I'm not exactly a drug-store cowboy. If you want to live out your fantasies, here's a book for you.
The most interesting this I learned during research, is that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid were not the buddy-buddy guys we saw in the movie. Naturally, I fictionalized this fact, but the truth is there.
