Legends & Lies is an American television series shown on Fox News Channel. Its primary executive producer is Bill O'Reilly. The show's premise is to present the history of notable people in documentary style, debunking inaccurate details that have entered pop culture mythology. The series features dramatizations of parts of the subjects' lives and exploits, as well as explanatory segments by historians and experts, and often O'Reilly himself.

Don Juan (/ˈdʒuːən/ JOO-ən; see below) is a satiric poem by Lord Byron, based on the legend of Don Juan, which Byron reverses, portraying Juan not as a womaniser but as someone easily seduced by women. It is a variation on the epic form. Byron himself called it an "Epic Satire" (Don Juan, c. xiv, st. 99). Byron completed 16 cantos, leaving an unfinished 17th canto before his death in 1824. Byron claimed that he had no ideas in his mind as to what would happen in subsequent cantos as he wrote his work.

I was recommended this book by a friend who knows I am interested in Southern Colorado history...He did me right!!...Lots of legends and lores....Roger Penn is a witty and great writer..His background is very interesting as well...I have a much better understanding of the Ouray area than I did before...I think it's great Mr. Penn wrote this for future generations who spend all day talking on their cellphones and listening to their Ipods...

Roger Henn, a native of Ouray, Colo., has been described as a storyteller extraordinaire, and indeed he is! In "Lies, Legends & Lore," his second book, Henn has compiled 43 stories he has collected over a lifetime of events that occurred? in the San Juans. No, the question mark is not a mistake. You see, with Henn one is never quite sure what to make of his stories. The following quote from the preface will give you an idea of what you can expect. "Unfortunately too many of today's historians are engaged in debunking the lore involved with the history and the personalities of the West...Give me the story that is told so well you are not sure when the truth stops and the great lie begins." I have read a considerable amount of history of the San Juan area but Henn's book introduced me to a virtual gold mine of little known facts and stories of everyday folks who settled the mountain towns that comprise the San Juans. The story of Billy Nagle, the murderer, will touch your heaart and leave you forever wondering if perhaps there is room for compassion in the administration of justice. The story of Rose's Cabin will bring back many memories tp those who have traveled the Alpine Loop Back Country Byway, or would like to. The story of Snow Snakes and Snow Mosquitoes, along with the one about a pet fly and murder, or justifiable homicide, will provide you with ample evidence that Henn surely deserves the title of storyteller extraordinaire. If you are looking for a well written, easy to read, delightful and informative book about the history and lore of the San Juan Mountain area, this book is a must read. Henn is one of those rare writers that can tell a story in print that leaves you feeling he is talking directly to you from in front of the livery stable in Ouray. And that's a fact!

I enjoy reading books about the old west. Roger's create writing style will entertain and educate anyone who picks up this book. Mining, Burro's, Ghost's and tales of lives and loves lost make this collection of short stories the best I have read so far. I now want to visit the areas mentioned in the book and see for myself.
