The Authentic Life of Billy, the Kid: A Faithful & Interesting Narrative

The Authentic Life of Billy, the Kid: A Faithful & Interesting Narrative Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Of all firsthand accounts of lawlessness in the old Southwest, none is more fascinating than Pat F. Garrett's The Authentic Life of Billy, the Kid. First published in 1882, a year after Sheriff Garrett killed the Kid, "the bravest and most feared" gunman of the Lincoln County, New Mexico, cattle war, it is at once the most authoritative biography of William H. Bonney and the foundation of the Billy the Kid legend.

Review:

"Every story of consequence on the Kid has been based on...Garrett's book....It is smartly enlivened by the definitive introduction of J.C. Dykes." New York Times

Review:

"More exciting than a dozen of the latest Westerns." Antiquarian Bookman

About the Author
