Poster of Butch Cassidy

1. Read the document. Use the description of the highwaymen given by Nathan Carrington to draw a "Wanted" poster, showing and describing the highwaymen and offering a reward for his capture.

2. The idea of the "gentleman robber" is a powerful one, from Robin Hood, to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, to Ned Kelly. Why do popular audiences still regard these criminals with affection? Why doesn't the law feel the same?
