The Lincoln County War, most popularly a platform for sensational depictions of Billy the Kid, is a case study in Western Frontier violence. “Utley recreates the West of the 1870s to pierce the legends… and leave the reader with a vivid image of the impact upon ordinary people of the code of the West, the cutthroat pursuit of financial fortunes of America’s Gilded Age and the twin harbingers of violence represented by Whiskey and Guns.” A fine copy in like dust jacket (265 pages, illustrations, notes, bibliography, index).
