Alias Billy the Kid: The Man Behind the Legend
Who was Billy the Kid? Was he Henry McCarty, Henry Antrim or William H. Bonny? Was he a Robin Hood or a cold-blooded outlaw? History says he was a little of both but in this book Donald Cline exposes Billy the Kid as a cowardly crook who did not hesitate to kill for money. Cline explodes all the popular myths and misrepresentations to bring us an authentic Billy the Kid, a cattle rustler, horse thief and murderer. Illustrated with historical photographs, "Booklist" has said that ..".Cline's book nicely balances the legend for both scholars and lay readers." This book is based on solid research and depicts the man behind the legend. * * * * Donald Cline as a historian spent more than thirty-five years studying the life and times of Billy the Kid. He assigned himself the task of separating fact from fiction.
