One of the Last Bank Robbers of the West
The Debonair Bandit: Based on a True Story
Written by: B. W. Hedgepeth
Narrated by: Jim Sartor
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I loved these old western bandit/bank robber stories and he was probably one of the last one. This was written a descendant of the Debonair Bandit. Because of the relationship I did notice that the bandit had a real tender heart and seemed to kill for justice or self defense. It is implied that he killed more but it doesn't say more on it. The dates, places, and facts are good and helpful. What makes the book "pop" is the narrator. It makes the book more real. The narrator can do so many voices, make the fiction seem fact. Without the narration, the book would would not be half as good, the narration as a realism that the print could not.
