Fortunately for today's readers, Miguel Otero's book, "The Real Billy the Kid," doesn't trace its roots back to the Garrett book. Even better, it addresses Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County War from an entirely new and unique perspective. Consider the following: 1) Otero actually knew Billy the Kid, although only slightly; 2) Unlike Pat /5(10).

Billy then told Joe that he was Billy the kid and they both reached for their guns. Of course Billy won and the outwitted Joe Grant lay dead.

The Kid was on the run again and on a posse managed to catch up with him as well as his friends Dirty. "This might be the best Billy the Kid book to date." ―Fritz Thompson, Albuquerque Journal In this revisionist biography, award-winning historian Michael Wallis re-creates the rich anecdotal saga of Billy the Kid (–), a young man who became a legend in /5(83).

In one sense, this is a good thing for Michael Wallis, the author of a new biography, “Billy the Kid: The Endless Ride” — he needn’t worry about name : T.

Stiles. Billy the Kid was a late 19th-century thief and gunfighter. He was reportedly killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett, who later burnished the legend of the Wild West : You've probably heard the legend of William H. Bonney, a.k.a. Billy the Kid, at one time or another. Most folks have.

But when it comes to the Kid, few things are completely certain - not his real name, not his parents' names, not even where he was born or /5. In researching his book, Edwards analyzed photographs of Billy the Kid and Roberts, and dug into the details of Roberts’s account of his life and compared them with known facts about Billy the.

But he also published a biography in titled “The Real Billy the Kid.” His aim in that book, he proclaimed, was to write the Kid’s story “without embellishment, based entirely on actual fact.” Otero had known the outlaw briefly and also had known the man who killed Billy inSheriff Pat Garrett.

But perhaps the most striking thing about the life of Billy the Kid was just how sad it was. From his birth in New York City to being orphaned at a young age to the fact that the opportunity for a different, happy, and successful life kept getting snatched away from him.

The real Billy the Kid wasn't the larger-than-life figure from the : Kathy Benjamin. A crude sketch of the Kid, not the real photo, appears in ’s The Real Billy the Kid by Miguel Otero.

FIRST BOOK ON KID The next attempt at a portrait of the Kid to appear in print (left) was in the first book about him, The True Life of Billy the Kid by Edmond Fable, published in Denver in Julywithin weeks after the Kid’s death.

Moreover, what The Real Billy the Kid displays throughout is an emplotted history that recounts and subversively questions U.S. colonialism as it swept through New Mexico after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo of Much as the poem begins to reveal, Otero’s recreation of the life and history of Billy the Kid not only reexamines and exposes.

Robert Utley has a well done book on Billy the Kid from many years ago but the author here does a great historical service in not only providing an excellent telling of the Billy the Kid saga but includes a well done on Garrett whose life ironically is ended by a gun in a very questionable and unresolved murder.5/5(5).

The book, “Billy the Kid: An Autobiography” by Daniel A. Edwards, tells the story of how former Hico resident William H. “Brushy Bill”. The origins of the real Billy the Kid, and even his actual name, are wrapped in obscurity.

In the version presented by Hansen, he is born William Henry McCarty was born in New York City in Billy also loved reading. According to Frank Coe, “Billy got to be quite a reader. He would scarcely have dishes washed until he would be sprawled out somewhere reading a book.” Billy liked dime novels and one of his favorites was early science fiction pioneer, Jules Verne.

Pat Garrett had this to say: “Billy always had his eyes to the. Jim has uncovered undeniable proof who Brushy Bill really was. Was he the real Billy the Kid. Maybe!. On the other hand, author, Helen Airy, wrote about a man by the name of John Miller whose family claimed that he was Billy the Kid.

Jim, again, found significant proof who John Miller really was. Maybe Miller really was Billy the Kid. Without a doubt, The Endless Ride is the best read yet to give great and accurate insight into Billy before he was 'Billy The Kid', where more than half of the book is focused.

This book is a must read for any fan of Billy the Kid and an excellent starting point for any individuals wishing to get swept away in the legend that is The Kid.5/5(5). Billy the Kid is popular and used for many local brands in Lincoln County, New Mexico.
