Overview

Often glorified by novelists and screenwriters, the outlaws of the Old West are enduring images. They were folk heroes in their own time and are still known more for their fictional forms than their true historical ones. The Return of the Outlaw Billy the Kid introduces a man who surfaced 68 years after Billy the Kid's alleged death. That man did not seek public attention and at first denied that he was once known as Billy Bonney. Confronted with the evidence he eventually admitted his identity. The result of research and investigation and painstakingly separating fact from lore, The Return of the Outlaw Billy the Kid takes careful aim at the controversial evidence and allows the readers to judge for themselves: Who was Billy the Kid?
