Summary
Many years after the death of Billy the Kid, Deputy John William Poe, who was just outside the door when Sheriff Pat Garrett killed him, wrote out the story, which was published in a small edition, Later, in 1933, this first-hand account was offered to a larger public with an introduction by Maurice Garland Fulton, who lived for many years among the scenes of Billy the Kid's wild career. While certain statements made in the book by Poe are controversial, his account is a valuable document for anyone interested in Billy the Kid -- Back cover
