What People Are Saying About Untarnished Reputation
Santa Barbara, CA
These Characters Come Alive!
I know the author refers to this book as a tall tale of the Old West,
but the story is so well researched, with so many different historical
events woven through, it's like a living and breathing history lesson.
Theodore Roosevelt really went through this little town of Hunters Hot
Springs, Montana in the summer of 1886. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance
Kid--before they earned their nicknames--really spent time working on
ranches and racing horses in Montana when they were just 19 and 20
years old. Liver Eating Johnson really was a town marshal in this part
of Montana when he was in his late 60s. Doc Holliday sought the cure
for his consumption in various sulfuric hot springs locations before
his death in Colorado just a year after the events in this story
