The Authentic Life of Billy the Kid
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2006
Duration: 5 hours 30 minutes
Pat Garrett was the sheriff of Lincoln County who killed Billy the Kid. When Garrett's book appeared, eight lurid dime novels had glorified and falsified the Kid, making him into a murderous super-outlaw. Garrett's book tells the more genuine story of a young, reckless cowhand who became a cattle rustler and a hired gun.
