Gunslingers; Myth and Reality - Billy the Kid | $49 + GST

Course Overview:

Have you ever wondered if the lawmen and outlaws of the Wild West really did complete the exploits we are led to believe? How honestly are the characters that we find in literature and movies really portrayed, and how much are they just products of media and legend? In this series, delve into four real life people; Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill, and Jesse James.

Billy the Kid

Possibly the most famous gunfighter in the American West. Known in legend as a highly skilled shooter, and said to have killed 8 men, he has been portrayed as a ruthless outlaw and anti-hero in movies, novels, and radio broadcasts more than any other gunslinger in history.

Pursued and eventually killed by Pat Garrett, he is the lawman who some say started his rise to fame with his book ‘The Authentic Life of Billy, the Kid’.
