While on a Christmas Eve drunk in Landus, Montana, the boys crashed a party at a lo- cal saloon. Harvey spotted Pike Landus, town founder and father of his ex-wife, and the fight was on. Fists gave way to guns, and Landusky took a fatal slug in the chest. Full-fledged fugitives with a price on their heads, the Logans headed straight for the Hole in the Wall, the impreg- nable headquarters of theWfld Bunch. Although leader Butch Cassidy prided himself on hav- ing never taken a life, he always assing through aWest Texas town on March 27, 1901, the most dangerous member of the Wild Bunch shot a stranger for no reason at all and left him to die. Orphaned at an early age, the three Logan boys were raised by a loving aunt in Missouri. But Harvey, the oldest and least receptive to her Christian teach- ings, eventuallyled brothers Lonie and Johnny astray, In 1884 the teenagers ran away from home to the wilds of Wyoming, where they learned the rustling racket from the hoof up. In four years, the Logans had enough cash and stolen cattle to start their own ranch. But the youths soon learned that hard work was not nearly as much fun or as profitable as the outlaw life.

The Logans had been rid- ing with the W'fld Bunch for a couple years, when they heard that a rancher named'qVmters had snitched on them to the authorities. Well-prepared for his uninvited company, the cowman put a bullet through Johnny Logan. Harvey and Lo- nie briefly retumed fire before retreating with the body of their dead brother. Following a bank robbery at Belle Fourche, Montana, a posse captured Kid Curry, Harvey's new alias, and two accom- plices. The three spent sixweeks behind bars before breaking jail and making a clean getaway, In the summer of 1899, the W'fld Bunch looted a train, divided the proceeds and split into small groups to confuse pursuers.
