I live in Southern California, so the story doesn't really touch where I live, but I love the story...and this is a great article. Thanks for sharing it with us, Erika - it's definitely worthy of a re-blog!
Most likely not...but this great article, written by Susan Spano for the Los Angeles Times, with its narrative qualities sure makes you feel like you are right there, back in history as Butch and his gang traveled through Utah's Red Canyon which was their home.
Susan specifically mentions St. George in her article as Butch's father was apparently sent by mormon church leaders to grow cotton here in Civil War time.
If you love old western style American history as much as I do, this article is a great read and there are some gorgeous red rock photos of our area in it as well.
