To Hell on a Fast Horse: Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, and the Epic Chase to Justice in the Old West by Mark Lee Gardner

“So richly detailed, you can almost smell the gunsmoke and the sweat of the saddles. ”-- So says Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Stories, Blood and Thunder, and other best selling works of narrative history and literary non-fiction about Mark Lee Gardner's new book about Billy the Kid and Sheriff Pat Garrett's pursuit of the Wild West's most iconic outlaw. It is also the first dual biography of both the Kid and Garrett, who together became legends of the old west. I'm really looking forward to reading this, as it is drawn from a wealth of published scholarship and voluminous primary sources to give us this fresh look at these two larger than life figures.
