Burton is meticulous in his work, a true scholar. One of the most detailed and interesting books I've ever read on the Ketchum gang and it's connection with Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch. The stories are told in an engaging way for those who read for pleasure, but the depth of knowledge is obvious to the history student, and the work is packed with end notes and references. It was filled with detailed infromation on the Ketchums history, each robbery and gunfight and what happened to all the participants. A well worthwhile read.

Burton’s own 1984 book, Bureaucracy, Blood Money and Black Jack’s Gang, dealt specifically with Black Jack Christian (who, like Tom Ketchum, rode alongside a brother for a while). The confusion between the Black Jacks might be bothersome, but if offers an intriguing story within a story, one covered well in The Deadliest Outlaws. The Black Jack Gang, or High Five Gang, was completely different from the Ketchum Gang-well, almost completely.

Sometimes the gang was referred to as the 'Hole in the Wall Gang'. This was during the Old West era in the United States. It was popularized by the 1969 movie, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and took its name from the original Wild Bunch

After Tom Ketchum had been sentenced to death for attempting to hold up a railway train, his attorneys argued that the penalty was “cruel and unusual” for the offense charged. The appeal failed and he became the first individual—and the last—ever to be executed for a crime of this sort. He was hanged in 1901; in a macabre ending to his life of crime, his head was torn away by the rope as he fell from the gallows.

Tom Ketchum was born in 1863 on a farm near the fringe of the Texas frontier. At the age of nine, he found himself an orphan and was raised by his older brothers. In his mid-twenties he left home for the life of an itinerant trail driver and ranch hand. He returned to Texas, murdered a man, and fled. Soon afterwards, he and his brother Sam killed two men in New Mexico. A year later, he and two other former cowboys robbed a train in Texas. The career of the Ketchum Gang was under way.

In their day, these men were the most daring of their kind, and the most feared. They were accused of crimes that were not theirs, but their proven record is long and lurid. Their downfall was brought about by what one editor called “the magic of the telephone and telegraph,” by quarrels between themselves, and by their reckless defiance of ever-mounting odds.

Jeffrey Burton has been researching the story of the Ketchum Gang and related outlaws for more than forty years. He has mined unpublished sources, family records, personal reminiscences, trial transcripts and other court papers, official correspondence and reports, census returns, and contemporary newspapers to sort fact from fiction and provide the definitive truth about Ketchum and numerous other outlaws, including Will Carver, Ben Kilpatrick, and Butch Cassidy.

The Deadliest Outlaws initially was published in a limited run of 100 paperback copies in England. This second edition in hardcover contains additional material and photographs not found in the earlier printing. It will prove to be the final word on the Ketchum and Wild Bunch gangs.
