In 1977, Montana author Larry Pointer claimed that Butch Cassidy was actually William T. Phillips, who died quietly in Spokane in 1937 – not in a Bolivian shootout.Since then, Pointer has published a new book, “Butch Cassidy’s Story: Bandit Invincible” in which Pointer does something remarkable: He admits he was wrong.
If I'd Killed Him When I Met Him by Sharyn McCrumb: I just love the title of this book! The whole sentence is "If I'd killed him when I met him, I'd be out of jail by now"! Another Southern writer who writes mysteries that are often based on old stories or mountain ballads. Two of them are The Ballad of Tom Dooley, and The Ballad of Frankie Silver.
