    Picture on the cover is misleading

    McMurtry is as always entertaining and a great story teller. The cover picture shown is that of Billy the Kid, AKA Henry Antrim. The story is totally fictional, that of Billy Bone and the narrator, by the name of Sippy, and bears little resemblance to the life of Billy the Kid other than that it is set in the eastern half of the state of New Mexico. Thus my only quarrel is the use of the cover picture to advertise the book. It is a fun read -- I would buy the DVD, were it made into a movie. Violent, and a bit bloody for less than a PG13 rating -- quite graphic in some places.

    Not what I'd guessed.

    I remember I got this book in high school and it wasn't anything like I thought it would be. Larry McMurtry sketches an entirely vulnerable portrait of anti-hero Billy the Kid, from the off-beat perspective of a dime novel writer who befriends Billy on the trail.

    I rather liked the book at the time, which is interesting, because I never could get through Lonesome Dove.

    A wonderful book

    This book is a joy to read and is fun if you know the land that is in. The Set is New Mexico and it is more or less about Billy the kid the outlaw that ran around in New Mexico and who and what ran with him. It is funny and it is a great read if you like to learn thing that are not true about the west and about Billy the Kid.
