A Swallow Press Book

The Bassett Women

By Grace McClure

“The Bassett home gave refuge to a veritable who’s who of western outlaws, among them Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Elzy Lay, Matt Warner, and many lesser rustlers… What makes the book so delectable are the lovingly detailed scandals involving Brown’s Park pioneers.”

True West

Grace McClure has created an even-handed account of the Bassets. Drawing on interviews with surviving family, friends and enemies, on memoirs, and on oral and written records from local libraries, newspapers, and archives she presents believable, life-size characters who respond realistically to the demands of pioneer life. The Bassett Women is one of the few creditable accounts of early settlers on Colorado's western slope, one of the last strongholds of the Old West.

Grace McClure was a free-lance writer based in Tucson, Arizona.
