King Fisher; his life and times by O. C Fisher( Book )

John King Fisher was a Texas gunslinger during the heyday of the Old West. He ran with a band of outlaws which carried out frequent raids into Mexico, during a time of massive raids, pillaging, looting, raping, and murder by United States and Mexican bandits. Pressure from the Texas Rangers caused Fisher to retire from this trade, and he began legitimate ranching. By the late 1870s, Fisher had a reputation as being fast with a gun, and was arrested several times for altercations in public by local lawmen. Although well known as a troublemaker, Fisher was well liked in south Texas. In 1884, while in San Antonio, Texas, on business, Fisher came into contact with his old friend, gunfighter and gambler Ben Thompson, who was involved in a feud, and was killed in an ambush there.--Adapted from Wikipedia

Billy the Kid : the bibliography of a legend by Jeff Dykes( Book )

10 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presumably the bibliography of a legend may be permitted as many vagaries as the legend itself. It is in that spirit, at any rate, that this volume describes not merely books but also phonograph records, a radio broadcast, motion pictures, comic books, and an advertising leaflet. Certainly the growth of the legend could not be properly portrayed without mention of these media for it is a part of the incredible story that a youth who died in New Mexico Territory in 1881 should life on in the minds of men, however inaccurately, through these modern forms of communication. The brief life of Billy the Kid is told so many times in the 437 items recorded in this volume, with so many variations, that when one has read them a new image of Billy has taken shape, different from any single presentation in the book. There is simply nothing one can do to stop a legend, because even analyzing it breathes into it a new life. In this work the author has kept his annotations remarkably well in hand. Types and prototypes march through them with surprising clarity. The collations, so faithfully set down by Mr. Dykes, are nevertheless in some respects a little wayward. Partly this is because of the nature of the material and partly it is because Mr. Dykes has produced the work--which probably could have been written by no one else--as a collector rather than as a professional bibliographer. It would have been ungracious to eliminate material that will be appreciated by his fellow enthusiasts--page 3
