In THE WEST OF BILLY THE KID, renowned authority Frederick Nolan has assembled a comprehensive photo gallery of the life & times of Billy the Kid. In text & in more than 250 images - many of them published here for the first time - Nolan recreates the life Billy lived & the places & people he knew. This unique assemblage is complemented by maps & a full biography that incorporated Nolan's original research, adding fresh depth & detail to the Kid's story & the lives & backgrounds of those who witnessed the events of his life & death. Here are the faces of Billy's family, friends, & enemies: John Tunstall & John Chisum, Sheriff Pat Garrett & Governor Lew Wallace, Jimmy Dolan & Bob Olinger, Alexander McSween & Paulita Maxwell, & many others. Here are Santa Fe & Silver City as Billy the Kid saw them, Lincoln, Las Vegas, & Tascosa. Recent photographs show the Kid's haunts as they appear today. Nolan reminds us that, despite his legendary, even mythical, portrayal in perhaps a thousand books & films, Billy the Kid was real. He was a young man whose reckless life & violent death in frontier New Mexico made an indelible mark on the history of the Southwest & a permanent impression on imaginations throughout the world. Here, at last, is his authentic life. Frederick Nolan is a professional writer who has devoted a lifetime of study to the Lincoln County War. Among his many books is THE LINCOLN COUNTY WAR: A DOCUMENTARY HISTORY, also published by the University of Oklahoma Press.
