BILLY THE KID The Endless Ride

by | Read by Todd McLaren

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Dime novels made Billy the Kid a legendary outlaw, but he was an actual person about whom the facts have become distorted. Michael Wallis pieces together newspaper accounts and other historical information to trace the Kid's life, covering his childhood, his early years in Santa Fe, and his experience of the Lincoln County wars. It's a story that twists and turns, and Todd McLaren maintains control expertly as the story evolves from coming-of-age to banditry and violence. While Wallis acknowledges the hyperbole and hearsay that interfere with creating an accurate picture of the Kid's life, his careful research and thoughtfulness show in every word.
