It is long past time for the publication of a well-researched, definitive biography of the infamous western outlaw Harvey Alexander Logan, better known by his alias, Kid Curry. In Wyoming he became involved in rustling and eventually graduated to bank and train robbing as a member - and soon leader - of the Wild Bunch. The core members of the gang came to be Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, George "Flatnose" Currie, Elzy Lay, Ben "the Tall Texan" Kilpatrick, Will Carver, and Kid Curry.
Kid Curry has been portrayed as a cold-blooded killer, without any compassion or conscience, and possessed of limited intelligence. Curry indeed was a dangerous man with a violent temperament, which was aggravated by alcoholic drink. Mark Smokov has researched extensively in areas significant to Curry's story and corrects the many false statements that have been written about him in the past.
Curry was a cunning outlaw who planned and executed robberies on par with anything Butch Cassidy is reported to have pulled off. Smokov contends that Curry was the actual train robbing leader of the Wild Bunch - there is no concrete evidence that Cassidy ever robbed a train.

Entertaining book with good narration
I didn't read the print version but the narration made this book easy to listen to
I liked hearing about all of them.
It was all entertaining. I was not familiar with Harvey Logan so for me, this book was very interesting.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
