This is a fascinating book about two of the most famous characters in the Old West. They are Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. This volume is brand new and was only taken out of its shrinkwrap in order to confirm that it is a first edition. There is no price on the dustjacket as is very common for books that are published by the universities. The recollections gathered here and edited by John P. Wilson are based on John P. Meadow's interviews with a reporter for the Alamagordo News, A partial transcript of his reminiscences found at the Lincoln State Monument, and a talk he gave by invitation at Roswell, New Mexico. A large part of the substance of the talk was to refute inaccuracies in the 1930 MGM movie 'Billy the Kid". Meadow's lucid presentation appeared in the Roswell Daily Record. He spoke about Pat Garrett, Billy the Kid, and other experiences from the Southwest's frontier days. Rare and interesting information as well as entertainment. A very fine book.
