This review is from: Billy the Kid: A Short and Violent Life (Paperback)
Being a huge fan of Billy the Kid, I recently purchased this book and I can truly say it is one of the most interesting and informative reads on this interesting and historical event, that I have come across. The book is packed full of information, key dates and events, photographs and written statements of people who were witnesses during the life of the Kid, including some of the people who rode with him. Robert Utley also deals with alot of background information about Lincoln County, its politics, its economy, and people who played a part in billy's life, which builds an amazing picture of life in the late 1800's. This book is an historical biography about one of the most famous outlaws in the world and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Nice one Mr Utley!
