Description

WE NOW KNOW MORE ABOUT BILLY THE KID THE PERSON THAN THE LEGEND -- William H. Bonney was the most famous outlaw of not only the Old West but current times as well. In almost all languages, regardless of location in the world, people recognize the name “Billy the Kid.” They may not know or understand his history, but he was and still is an international celebrity. Psycholinguistic analysis of Billy’s actual language in his letters and notes to Governor Lew Wallace and friends delivers a trove of undisclosed information. Not everything written about the Kid was correct. The public only saw the Kid as an enigma. As is often the case with historical figures, storytellers embellish the facts to create the legend. In this book, I resurrect in thought not a folk hero, but the authentic William H. Bonney, alias Billy the Kid, and unmask an impostor who claimed to be him.
