Editorial Reviews

"Crackles with murder, intrigue, and the clash of desperate men struggling for possession of a grasslands empire. . . . [This] history will not likely ever be equaled—certainly never surpassed." —Arizona and the West"This long-awaited book represents a lifetime of research by a meticulous historian . . . lively, well-documented, and most readable." —Pacific Historical Review"[Fulton] followed Billy the Kid and the story of the Lincoln County War relentlessly and intelligently. . . . [His book is] a superb achievement, reflecting great credit on both Fulton and the editor of the manuscript." —New Mexico Historical Review
