Abstract:

Mention the name, Billy the Kid, to any American of any age. Would anyone not know him? Billy the Kid is among the most recognizable Americans of all time. And yet, in spite of hundreds of articles and books written about him, he remains a mystery. Who was this boy, this kid of a man who lived and died in the thinly populated region of the Territory of New Mexico where only a few witnessed his feats? Why was he so newsworthy during his lifetime and a legend after his death? Part of the answer lies in the obituaries and reports of his death published nationally within hours after he was felled by a bullet from Sheriff Pat Garrett'. These reports launched a legend, one that continues to grow -- Book jacket.
