Publisher's Summary

When Lorinda Jameson's bankrupt father commits suicide and the infamous Black Hand mafia is dispatched to collect his debts - or her head - the young orphan and Philadelphia debutante rechristens herself "Etta Place" and goes West.

Etta initially earns her way as a "Harvey Girl" waitress in a remote Colorado railroad outpost, but fate and murder soon intervene and Etta joins forces with Butch Cassidy's notorious gang, the Wild Bunch.

In their hideout at Hole-in-the-Wall, Wyoming, Etta meets Harry Longbaugh, a.k.a. the Sundance Kid, and begins the passionate and tragic romance that will be the greatest of her life.

"Great fun and - beneath the hijinks - a surprisingly substantial novel." (Kirkus Reviews)
"[A] winning tale of the Wild West....Kolpan's snappy storytelling makes it impossible not to want to ride along as the characters careen toward their tragic ends." (Publishers Weekly)
