  • “Robert LeRoy Parker (Butch Cassidy),” Diccionario Histórico de Bolivia, Dr. Josep M. Barnadas, editor, Sucre, Bolivia 2002 (Buck & Meadows). Da un ensayo biográfico sobre Butch y Sundance en Bolivia. (Nota: la afirmación de que el guión de la película de 1969 “aprovechó fraudulentamente un guión elaborado en los años 50” por dos Bolivianos no es la verdad, y además no lo escribieron Buck y Meadows. Se puso un editor del DHB sin el conocimiento de Buck y Meadows.)
  • “Last of the Bandit Riders … Revisited,” NOLA Quarterly, April-May 2001 (Buck). Reviews Last of the Bandit Riders … Revisited (Big Moon Traders: Salt Lake City, 2000), by Matt Warner as told to Murray E. King and revised by Joyce Warner and Steve Lacy, chiefly by Lacy, since Joyce Warner died in 1992.  Lacy inserted numerous dubious facts and photos into this reissue of Matt Warner’s 1940 memoir, turning it into a scrapbook of anecdote and fable.  Chief among them: Warner wrote that Butch and Sundance had died in South America; Lacy inserted fanciful material suggesting otherwise. Best to stick with Matt Warner’s original The Last of The Bandit Riders (Bonanza Books: NY, 1940).
