Billy the Kid: The Best Writings on the Infamous Outlaw Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since his death in 1881, Henry McCarty—aka William Bonney, alias Billy the Kid—has been the subject of thousands of published volumes, most of them unavailable to the general public. In movies, stage plays, short stories, novels, newspaper articles, poems, and songs, literally hundreds of authors have been drawn to explore his near mythical persona.

This collection makes the best of this work accessible. An artfully arranged anthology, Billy the Kid: The Best Writings on the Infamous Outlaw includes rare excerpts from the Kids canon. Together, these pieces of fiction, biography, and personal essay yield a compelling collage of character—and are an essential addition to the library of anyone interested in the myths and the realities of one of Americas most fascinating historical figures.

Synopsis:

An anthology of the most captivating and historically important writings about Billy the Kid, including excerpts from novels, period newspaper articles, and biographies.
