Robbers Roost was a hideout for outlaws and hunted men long before Butch Cassidy found it in 1884. The wastelands of the high desert in Southeastern Utah seemed impenetrable. Cut through by canyons along the Green and Colorado rivers, bounded by the Dirty Devil river, the terrain was a natural barrier discouraging lawmen from pursuit.

In the 1890's they rustled cattle over Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, and Arizona. Robbing banks and trains, Butch Cassidy, The Sundance Kid, Flat Nose George, the Curry Boys, Elzy Lay, Gunplay Maxwell, the McCarty Boys, Peep O'Day, Silver Tip, Blue John, and Indian Ed Newcomb, all came to Robbers Roost. In Baker's book they all come to rip-roaring life even while courting death at this most famous of all infamous hideouts. Download and start listening now!

    " Good stories on Butch, Elzy, and the rest of the Wild Bunch. My favorite part is the Castle Gate Holdup. I always think about it when I drive to Price. I want to explore Thompson and more of the area along the Green River north of town. "

    " Great read, especially while sight-seeing in Southeastern Utah. It is a compilation of several wild west cowboys. Some stories were first-hand accounts of people who knew or witnessed bank/train robberies. "

    " Folklore rather than history, but still pleasurable reading, especially if you've spent time in southeastern Utah. "
