Charles A. Siringo didn't' like killing, so he didn't like Billy the Kid. But he knew that many of the gunmen on Billy's trail deserved hanging more than the victim.

Riata and spurs : the story of a lifetime spent in the saddle as cowboy and detective by Charles A Siringo( Book )

10 editions published between 1927 and 2012 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his introduction to the 1927 edition of Riata and Spurs, Gifford Pinchot said that "Charlie Siringo's story of his life is one of the best, if not the very best, of all books about the Old West, when cowpunchers actually punched cows." He goes on to say that "it is worth something to be able to lay your hand on a book written by a man who is the real thing, and who tells the truth." Others might not have the same opinion about the book and some might argue about Siringo's memories of things that happened during his lifetime. But, in any event, the book is a colorful portrayal of the ins and outs of cowboys, bad men, and the one detective who took out after them. Siringo originally had references to his experiences with the Pinkerton Agency, but which objected to his statements and they do note appear in the 927 edition. There's plenty left, however, including stories about Billy the Kid, Kid Curry, Butch Cassidy, and even a mention of Will Rogers. All in all, this fascinating book will give today's readers a rare glimpse of what was once called "the Old West" and is now forever gone -- Back cover
