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

Author(s): Mark Lee Gardner


To Hell On a Fast Horse brings to life the thrilling manhunt for the Wild West's most iconic outlaw.

It also will be the first dual biography of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett, two larger-than-life figures from the American West who are inextricably linked - neither would become the stuff of legend without the other. Making excellent use of voluminous primary source material and decades of published scholarship on the Kid and Garrett, the book will go beneath the myth to take a fresh look at these two men, what they meant to one another, and what they would come to mean to an American public enamoured of a violent American West.
