Описание

From the bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-winning "absolute master of 'Western' prose," comes McMurtry's electrifying take on the classic tale of Billy the Kid, the teenage outlaw of the American Old West.

The first time I saw Billy, he came walking out of a cloud...

Welcome to the wild, hot-blooded adventures of Billy the Kid, the American West's most legendary outlaw. Larry McMurtry takes us on a hell-for-leather journey with Billy and his friends as they ride, drink, love, fight, shoot, and escape their way into the shining memories of Western myth. Surrounded by a splendid cast of characters that only Larry McMurtry could create, Billy charges headlong toward his fate, to become in death the unforgettable desperado he aspires to be in life. Not since Lonesome Dove has there been such a rich, exciting novel about the cowboys, Indians, and gunmen who live at the blazing heart of the American dream.

Отзывы читателей

  • (4/5)
    A fictional biography of the adventures of Billy the Kid.
  • (4/5)
    I've never been much on Westerns, but this was a great read. McMurtry does his best in portraying the characters that pepper the book with a quick dialog and good action. The story surrounds an Easterner who writes dime novels. He abandons his family to follow his heart to the Wild West where he meets up with a very conflicted Billy the Kid. Imaginative plus.
  • (1/5)
    McMurtry runs out of gas when the series is pushed too far: re-read "Lonesome Dove" instead of picking up this one.
