From the bestselling writer of course sixty six comes this long-awaited biography of 1 of America's so much mythical folks heroes. Award-winning historian Michael Wallis has spent a number of years re-creating the wealthy, anecdotal saga of Billy the child (1859-1881), a deeply mythologized younger guy who turned a legend in his personal time and but continues to be an enigma to at the present time. With the Gilded Age in complete swing and the economic Revolution reshaping the yank panorama, "the Kid," who used to be gunned down through Sheriff Pat Garrett within the New Mexico Territory on the age of twenty-one, turned a brand new breed of star outlaw. He arose amid the secret and fantasy of the quickly vanishing frontier and, sensationalized past reputation via the tabloids and dime-store romances of the day, emerged as some of the most enduring icons of the yankee West-not to say one among Hollywood's so much misrepresented characters. This new biography separates fantasy from fact and provides an unforgettable portrait of this short and violent existence.
