Billy the Kid 1x52

One of America’s most beloved folk heroes, Billy the Kid became a legend in his own time, yet remains an enigma to this day. Gunned down at the age of 21, his legend arose amidst the swiftly vanishing frontier and then, sensationalized beyond recognition by the tabloids and dime-store romances of the day, he emerged as one of the most enduring icons of the American West–not to mention one of Hollywood’s most misrepresented characters. This biography separates myth from reality and presents an unforgettable portrait of “The Kid’s” brief and violent life.
