The Last Outlaws…is eloquent of not only the Old West that we think of when we see a photograph of a butte or a mustang or a Colt revolver but also of the implacable forces of time and change that extinguished it.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Fans of Old West lore will find The Last Outlaws an absorbing and entertaining read.” —USA Today

The Last Outlaws is extremely well-written and feels more like a novel or work of fiction compared to a factual biography. It's a must read for any fan of the Old West and the outlaw life.” —The Desert News

“In this dual biography of celebrated bandits, a specialist in the Old West deftly separates fact from fiction.” —Kirkus Reviews

“While not the first or likely the last book to chronicle the colorful lives of outlaws Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Hatch has potentially written the most authoritative. Drawing from an impressive number of sources, Hatch's multidimensional study of two of the Wild West's most famous criminals and their compatriots strives for accuracy without sacrificing entertainment value…. [An] immersive and entertaining study.”—Publishers Weekly

“Mr. Hatch [is] an accomplished historian with a journalist’s eye and a novelist’s touch.” —The Washington Times

“Hatch achieves what most historical writers fail at, engaging their readers while giving a full-untainted history…. Writing about two of history's biggest outlaws is no small order. But Hatch does so beautifully, creating a vivid image of who these men truly were and what motivated them… Hatch is a skilled and veteran historical writer and his expertise shines through in his latest work.” —LatinosPost.com
