    Greatly detailed history of a mysterious legend. Good read.

    I found this story of Billy the Kid very detailed, informative and interesting. It kept the flow of the historical details and gave more infomration than I've read before on this subject. I would highly recommend it.

    Solid research makes a good read!

    In his new book, Billy the Kid, The Endless Ride, Michael Wallis offers a different view of a young man who made his mark primarily around the southern region of New Mexico Territory. Wallis begins with Billy¿s birth in New York City. ¿If, indeed, his birthplace was New York, no records that can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he ever lived there have been uncovered.¿ The Lincoln County War in southern New Mexico Territory brought Billy into prominence. Miguel Antonio Otero, two-term governor of New Mexico Territory, said of Billy, ¿I liked The Kid very much. Nothing would have pleased me more than to have witnessed his escape. He had his share of good qualities and was very pleasant. He had a reputation for being considerate of the old, the young and the poor he was loyal to his friends and above all, loved his mother devotedly.¿ Otero was one of many Hispanics who held Billy in high esteem. Billy respected them, was fluent in their language, and loved their culture, their food and one of their own. The Lincoln County War would put him at odds with political and economic MORE competitors. His participation in the war would cost him his life. He would be shot down by a man who himself had walked the thin line of right and wrong, a man who had a reputation of his own. Billy the Kid, The Endless Ride is well documented and researched. Author Michael Wallis provides much needed background on Billy¿s beginning¿something most writers ignore. In so doing, we learn more about the young man who would become a historic personality. Wallis concludes: ¿No matter how the story is told, Billy the Kid lives on. Whether he is described as El Chivato, champion of the oppressed, or a Satanic psychopath, he remains irrepressible, mysterious, and lethal. ¿His ride across our popular imagination will never end.¿
