Billy the Kid
[the Endless Ride]Audiobook on MP3 CD - 2007
Steeped in legend, shrouded in folklore and outright lies, Billy the Kid has been portrayed for over 125 years as one of the most savage killers in American folklore. Yet for others, particularly the Hispanic people of the Southwest, the Kid was an avenging angel and a sagebrush Robin Hood. For them and many others, the Kid embodied youth, nobility, humanity, romance, and tragedy. Now along comes Michael Wallis's sympathetic yet completely authoritative biography, which challenges and debunks many of the myths that have hounded this young man since his death at the age of 21. By scrupulously retelling Billy the Kid's brief but compelling story in an effort to set the record straight, Wallis -- renowned for his social histories of the West -- has created a new portrait of this outlaw.
