Railroad Bill by Alan Lomax

What a character! I have enjoyed learning about him, JC. Nice posts.
Thanks Cindy. This closes the door on Billy. I move to doing a worthy profile of Richard Farnsworth who is a Western Icon and was a stuntman in MANY famous movies for about 35 years before becoming an actor. Onward.
Clearly in line to be the hero of a new TV series. All his sins will be forgiven and he will be the Robin Hood of his time.
There are no end of available outlaws to be exploited and Hero-ised. Billy may rise again.
Funny how many of our Western Heroes are outlaws. Even some of our Goodguys – like Earp – were pretty well thugs with a badge who bent the law to their own purpose.
But we do love those that fight against the establishment.
