According to historians, only one lawman ever entered Butch Cassidy's famous outlaw hideout, Robbers Roost. That man left without his horse, boots, or trousers. Long Shadows tells the true story of another lawman, Wilford Halladay, who not only entered Robbers Roost and came out safely, but was the celebrated bandit's best friend.
Based upon actual events in the life of the author's grandfather, Long Shadows is a story of two lives going in totally different directions. It tells how even strong bonds of love cannot prevent life's trials.
Under the watchful eye of craftsman writer Lee Nelson, Long Shadows weaves a saga of heart-rending romance, close calls with Indians and the elements, dangerous escapes, and crafty captures. This tragic tale shows how intimacy of the most sublime nature can last as a legacy for future generations and how even the smallest actions can influence future deeds, thoughts, and decisions.
As the ancient Indian chief said, Remember, my son, you cannot walk without a shadow.
