Billy the Kid
Possibly the most famous gunfighter in the American West. Known in legend as a highly skilled shooter, and said to have killed 8 men, he has been portrayed as a ruthless outlaw and anti-hero in movies, novels, and radio broadcasts more than any other gunslinger in history.
Pursued and eventually killed by Pat Garrett, he is the lawman who some say started his rise to fame with his book ‘The Authentic Life of Billy, the Kid’.
