"So richly detailed, you can almost smell the gunsmoke and the sweat of the saddles. "
--Hampton Sides, New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Soldiers

No outlaw typifies America's mythic Wild West more than Billy the Kid. To Hell on a Fast Horse by Mark Lee Gardner is the riveting true tale of Sheriff Pat Garrett's thrilling, break-neck chase in pursuit of the notorious bandit. David Dary calls To Hell on a Fast Horse, "A masterpiece," and Robert M. Utley calls it, "Superb narrative history." This is spellbinding historical adventure at its very best, recalling James Swanson's New York Times bestseller Manhunt--about the search for Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth--as it fills in with fascinating detail the story director Sam Peckinpah brought to the screen in his classic film Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

An attempt to provide an "historically accurate" picture of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett. The author tries to point out where no accurate picture can be draw, but results in creating a confusing story.
