Book Review: Bill O’Reilly’s Legends and Lies by Bill O’Reilly, David Fisher

Fisher and O’Reilly have a winner on their hands. This is an outstanding book—an easy read, informative, and factual. Fisher leads us through the life and adventures of a dozen famous men of the “wild” West.  He starts with Daniel Boone and concludes with Butch Cassidy. Fisher strips these biographies of the folderol and presents the facts. He sets the perspective for each person’s story by discussing the history extant and the prevailing social ambiance. Importantly, he does not takes sides—neither accusatory nor sympathetic—such is especially the case in his discussion of the Indian Wars.

I wholeheartedly recommend the book for any aficionado of the historic West.
