"Born Henry McCarty, Billy the Kid was a diminutive, charming, blond-haired young man who, growing up in New York, Kansas, and later New Mexico, demonstrated a precocious dexterity at firing six-shooters with either hand--a skill that both got him into and out of trouble and that turned him into an American legend of the old West. He was smart, well-spoken, attractive to both white and Mexican women, a good dancer, and a man with a nose for money, horses, and trouble. His spree of crimes and murders has been immortalized in dime westerns, novels, and movies. But the whole story of his short, epically violent life has never been told as it has been here."-- Provided by publisher.

As a lover of all things western I adored this fictional account of our beloved Billy the Kid. In this telling of his tale you will grow so fond of the character that you will be saddened by what you already know is his inevitable demise. Billy the Kid as you have never envisioned him before.
