Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Billy the Kid: Beyond the Grave

    In 1881, US Marshal Pat Garrett shot and killed the famous Billy the Kid. Or did he? In 1950, Brushy Bill Roberts came forward claiming to be the Kid. With a strong narrative and eye-witness accounts in hand, he requested a pardon from then-Governor Mabray. The pardon was denied, and Brushy Bill died 11 days later.

    Was Brushy Bill the famous outlaw? Did New Mexico brush off Brushy Bill? Was there a political coverup by the officials?
    Jameson examines Robert's claims and evidence and compares it with accepted theory and thought. We may never know for certain who was shot that dark night in Fort Sumner, NM, but Jameson does a credible and thorough job of unraveling some of this mystery.
