Paperback ($26.95) Buy
In the annals of western history, the Lincoln County War stands out as a complex and tragic event in which lives were lost, fortunes destroyed, and peaceful citizens transformed into lonely, exiled outlaws. A classic reference work on the era of Billy the Kid, this fast-moving account brings new meaning to the war and to those individuals who became its victims.

[This] history will not likely ever be equaled—certainly never surpassed." —Arizona and the West"This long-awaited book represents a lifetime of research by a meticulous historian . . . lively, well-documented, and most readable." —Pacific Historical Review"[Fulton] followed Billy the Kid and the story of the Lincoln County War relentlessly and intelligently. . . . [His book is] a superb achievement, reflecting great credit on both Fulton and the editor of the manuscript." —New Mexico Historical Review
