The Old West was coming to an end. Two legendary outlaws refused to go with it. As leaders of the Wild Bunch, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid executed the most daring bank and train robberies of their day. For several years at the end of the 1890s, the two friends, along with a revolving band of thieves, eluded law enforcement while stealing from the rich bankers and Eastern railroad corporations who exploited Western land…until they rode headlong into the twentieth century. In The Last Outlaws, Thom Hatch brings these memorable characters to life like never before. From their early holdup attempts to that fateful day in Bolivia, Hatch draws on a wealth of fresh research to go beyond the myth and provide a compelling new look at these legends of the Wild West.

A treacherous ride for supplies brings mortal danger to a trigger-happy gunfighter in this thrilling Ralph Compton western. Big Charlie Chilton knows better than to lose his temper, but when a loudmouth threatens to expose his long-buried secrets, he can’t help but teach the man a lesson about keeping quiet. Unfortunately, it turns out the man was about to make an important supply run for the town marshal, and Marshal Watt knows just enough about Shotgun Charlie’s past to draft him into service. The trek north would be treacherous enough with the snow, but the ragtag drunkards running the freighting outfit make Charlie ill at ease. When bad blood springs up between them, Charlie is left for dead on the side of the mountain. But they should have made sure he was really gone, because the wounded bear of a man isn’t down without a fight, and he’s ready to wreak vengeance on those who did him wrong....
