Three thousand miles apart, Oregon mill owner, Robert Carlisle, and New York City freight company proprietor, James Longley, were each marked for death. Carlisle and Longley had a secret past. Years earlier they had been hunted by an elite posse that was more interested in Western justice than courtroom procedure. The posse was set loose to wipe out the Hole in the Wall Gang, who had been amazingly successful in the robbing of the Union Pacific Railroad. In order to save themselves, Carlisle and Longley left the country. They eventually returned, each melting into the everyday life of a successful businessman.
"Legends Lost is an intriguing adventure set in the Old West. With historic characters such as Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid and Etta Place, the book is a real page turner.
“Mac does great justice to the image of Butch and Sundance…Legends Lost is an excellent story.”
“Familiar Western characters come to life…an intriguing Western mystery with twists and turns and plenty of surprises.”
"Legends Lost is a whirlwind of intrigue and adventure. All in all I thoroughly enjoyed this book."
"Legends Lost...an easy read that had me wanting to turn the page. I recommend this book to everyone...great job to the author!"
“What if Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid did not die in Bolivia, as suggested by the classic movie’s freeze-frame ending? Breakout author Charlie Mac explores that intriguing ‘what if ’in a well-woven tale about America’s transition from the days of the Wild West to a tamer, albeit less exciting, period. Grab the reins and hang on. Legends Lost is a great ride.”
A former entrepreneur and marketing executive, Charlie Mac lives in Colorado and is the author of four novels.
