Out of the ashes of the Dalton Gang’s downfall in 1892 rose the infamous Wild Bunch, led by easygoing cowboy-turned-outlaw Bill Doolin. The Last Desperado chronicles Doolin’s compelling journey from the cattle ranches to the outlaw trail as his fame grows to legendary proportions–and as he struggles to reconcile his life of crime with his desire for a peaceful home life with his wife and son.
