Man this book was good. It was exceeding all other books about Billy the Kid. The author W. C. Jameson did a good job because he interviewed, William Henry Roberts, the believed, by many people, to be the infamous outlaw Billy the Kid. People believe William Henry Roberts is Billy the Kid because he was illiterate and he knew more about Billy the Kid than most historians do. I also liked it because it had guns and a lot of fighting parts. It showed how Billy the Kid could be hot headed and also incognito. This book is good for guys and girls interested in history, between the ages of 15 years old and 40. The only problem is that not everybody thinks William Henry Roberts is Billy the Kid. So its time for you to decide: Is William Henry Roberts Billy the Kid?

This is not a strict biography of the Kid. But it gathers many interesting facts about his life and tries to set the record straight. If you feel sympathetic toward the Kid then you will like this book.
Billy the Kid was the ultimate underdog but he won out in the end and lived to be 90 years old. This book proves more than any other that William Henry Roberts, and Billy were the same and that Pat Garret killed the wrong man, then lied about it for fame and gain.
