About the Author:

W. C. Jameson is the author of over twenty-eight books and 200 articles, a newspaper columnist, a songwriter, and an entertainer. Former President of the Western Writers of America, he won the Stirrup Award for the best magazine article. He is an award-winning syndicated columnist with over 1,200 columns. As a writer, he is well known for his compelling series on America's lost mines and buried treasure.

From Booklist:

The Lincoln County War, fought in New Mexico in the late 1870s, was one of the more sordid episodes in the history of the American West. One finds rapacious ranchers and businessmen, cattle rustlers, and corrupt lawmen and politicians. It was a small-scale affair, but it has become notorious primarily due to the "exploits" (inflated by dime novelists) of a sociopathic killer, Henry McCarthy, aka Henry Antrim, William Bonney, and best known as Billy the Kid. The short, violent life of the Kid (who supposedly had killed a man for each of his 21 years) ended when his onetime friend, Sheriff Pat Garrett, shot him in a ranch house in 1881. Or did he? In this highly speculative but intriguing work, Jameson strongly implies that Garrett shot the wrong man in that dark room. Jameson then takes an Olympian leap by suggesting that the "real" Kid was actually one William Henry Roberts, who fled New Mexico, lived an adventurous life, and died in central Texas in 1950. An enjoyable reexamination of a legendary piece of Americana. Jay Freeman

Book Description Taylor Trade Publishing, United States, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. Taylor Trade Pu. Language: English . Brand New Book. Billy the Kid: Beyond the Grave traces the life of this famous desperado through his role in the Lincoln County War, the alleged killing by Sheriff Pat Garrett, Billy s escape, and his life for the next sixty-nine years. In 1948, an old man named William Henry Roberts was confronted with evidence that he was Billy the Kid. At first he denied his identity, but reluctantly admitted who he was. Based on taped interviews with Roberts, new evidence discovered in the 1990s, and sophisticated photo comparison technology by the FBI, the conclusion that Roberts was Billy the Kid gains support.
