Butch Cassidy learned to ride a horse in Circleville, Utah. Federico Fellini cut movie deals at the Grand Hotel Plaza in Rome. Jazz Age diva Josephine Baker raised 12 orphans in a 15th century French chateau.

In the last 10 years, she has tracked down some of the world's most remarkable people and told their stories in this collection of L.A. Times articles.
