We're hard at work updating and finalizing my third and final book on this guy.
The Final Word
When I was 12-years-old I bought a bogus photo of Billy the Kid.
That was 62 years ago.
I drove thru Lincoln for the first time, 42 years ago and I finally visited Old Fort Sumner and the Kid's grave, 36 years ago. I published my first book on the Kid 28 years ago and my second book, a very expanded look at the Lincoln County War and the Kid, 24 years ago. Over the past 20 years, during my tenure at True West magazine, we have covered, updated and refined virtually every aspect of the Kid's life. This newest book—my third—will be a compilation of all of the above. Is it the final word on the subject?
Hardly. But it is MY final word.
