      A well researched story of Pat Garrett and a good factual cover of the Lincoln County war and Billy the Kid s Life It was nice to revisit this book as we walked some of the same land the story takes place in when we lived in El Paso Even got to visit the the temporary court house where Billy the Kid was sentenced to hang.
