Publisher's Summary

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.

How the West was lived for certain folks . . .

Although I am not en expert on the topic, this is a seemingly well researched look at the Wild West and a legend of those times. This is not typically the type of book that I get into, and that could be part of the reason it seemed to move a bit slow for me and required an extra amount of perseverance for me to get through. Aside from that, I found the story to be rather interesting and the narration went quite a ways in keeping me on-board with the work; it does last over 11hours.

All in all, I would recommend this book to everyone with an deep interest in this time period of American history. I would also say that it may be something to explore for those looking for something new as far as U.S. history goes.

A review copy of this audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in return for this unbiased review. My hope is that this review helps in your decision to obtain this book.

Interesting listen.

Enjoyable listen. Slow on the start as you get through the genealogical facts
The story was well researched and was insightful into the life and times of the Hole in the Wall Gang

The Wild West in exquisite detail

Who isn't fascinated by cowboys and the Wild West? Six shooters, colt 45's, bank robbers, poker games, shoot outs, law men, escapes, posses and more. This book delivers on the gritty truth of the Wild West, the Wild bunch and some of the most notorious names in the west. Well researched well written and well narrated.

Opens your eyes to the real old west

What a great book! I learned so much about the 18-1900's old west while listening to this book. For example, not everyone was convicted for crimes they were accused of committing.. and a lot of the examples from actual history referenced made me think that in the old days, a trial by jury was a real trial by jury! Anyway, into the book...Kid Curry I didn't know much about prior to this book ,but come to find out he actually was involved in a lot of the stories you hear about with many of the "famous" outlaws of the train and bank robbery old west. The who,what and where was well reasearched and explained. A lot of the stories tied the people involved together like a tapestry and painted to a really easy to understand history of Kidd Curry and his co-conspirators. If you like the old west, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kidd ....you'll love this book!

He Rode with Butch and Sundance: The Story of Harvey "Kid Curry" Logan
Written by: Mark T. Smokov
Narrated by: Jim R Sartor
I requested this audible book and the review is voluntary. This book is one that has to be digested slowly and in bits. There is sooo much information that I can't keep all the info straight if read all at once. There is too many people, places, crimes, and other information to keep things straight. All of it is so interesting. It is so amazing what life was like back then. Reading this made me feel like I was back there, I felt dusty, tired, and griddy. I smelt horses, blood, and dirty cowhands. This has bank robbery, cattle rustlers, train robbers, forgery, and so many more crimes. The injuries the obtained and somehow lived was amazing too! How they didn't die of infection is pure luck because the hygiene didn't sound all that great at times. This book just didn't talk about Kid Curry but also those around the Kid and the Kid got around. This was a fascinating book but it really needs to be read in small bite size pieces. Slow and to digest slowly to enjoy it better! Lots of the myths I grew up to believe were dispelled. This also goes back and tells all about his childhood on up to his death and beyond. The narrator was great too. The many voices he had to do and was able to keep straight, fantastic! I encourage any history buff to check this book out.
