He admits it - Bill is honest - far more honorable than many men who have never been closer to the bars than a traffic citation. To read the story of his life - in plain, unvarnished language - is to understand the tragedy of an orphan, unwanted and unloved. But somewhere in his blood was the iron that forged the Old West - for early in his youth he drifted West to Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas." " HomeEncyclopediaBill Carlisle, Gentleman BanditLori Van PeltBill Carlisle, Gentleman BanditThe story reads like a dime novel: A white-masked train robber succeeds in acquiring “donations” from Union Pacific passengers and, despite a massive manhunt, eludes capture. He robs again. After being caught, he escapes from prison, holds up another train, and is returned to the penitentiary. There, he meets a priest who helps him repent. The robber earns parole, marries, operates a restaurant, and writes a book about his experiences.
