Her name is Martha Baird. Most know her as Etta Place, the fearless woman who rode with notorious outlaws Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Told in Etta's voice, Sundance, Butch and Me is history transformed. From daring train robberies and hair-raising escapes from the law, to her attraction to Sundance and love for Butch, Etta recounts the drama, passion, and adventures of America's most famous—and sometimes most comic—band of robbers.

Despite a famous movie, countless books, and much conjecture, no one knows the truth about Etta Place. In this novel, Judy Alter, an author acclaimed for chronicling women of the nineteenth-century American West, creates one of the most believable and plausible accounts of this ever-mysterious woman.
