Readers will explore the life of the American West's most notorious criminal. Dying at the age of twenty-one, Billy the Kid used his short life to engage in all kinds of violent and criminal acts, but perhaps is best known for his role in the Lincoln County, New Mexico, war between rival cattle interests. Using the personal statements of those who knew Billy the Kid, Bruns shows how history has come to glamorize the western outlaw and his deeds, making it hard to separate fact from fiction.
