Recommended. By Rick Geary. William H. Bonney went from cowboy and rancher's gunslinger to a pure outlaw, dodging justice in New Mexico before it was even a state. He was charming, fun-loving, often present at social events, quite appealing to the ladies. But he had no compunction about coldly killing a man, a sheriff, a deputy—anyone who got in the way of his rustling cattle or horses for an illicit living. He also proved hard to keep in jail once he was caught. It is probably his daring escapes from jails that made him most famous, and this is the main focus of this biography.
