According to the history books, legendary outlaw Butch Cassidy was killed in 1908 alongside the Sundance Kid in a bloody shootout with the Bolivian Army. Or was he?

From master storytellers William W. Johnstone and  J.A. Johnstone, a page-turning revisionist Western and gripping tribute to a true icon of the Wild West that asks the question: What if Butch Cassidy survived?

In a small Texas town in 1950, a Pinkerton detective interrupts an old-timer’s game of dominos to learn the truth about Butch Cassidy—who is still very much alive and well. In fact, he’s the old-timer playing dominos.

Seems that after surviving the infamous shootout in Bolivia that claimed the life of his partner the Sundance Kid, Butch returns to Texas searching for a place to call home. When he comes across a dying rancher who’d been shot by some rustlers, Butch promises to avenge him—and take over the ranch after his death. Assuming the name Jim Strickland, Butch begins a new chapter in his life. But trouble has a way of finding Butch. A corrupt railroad baron pulls him into the most dangerous train robbery he’s ever attempted. But if Butch Cassidy is going to ride again, it’ll have to be with a newer, and wilder, Wild Bunch . . .
