Billy the Kid : the endless ride by Michael Wallis ( Book )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Historian Wallis has spent several years re-creating the rich, anecdotal saga of Billy the Kid (1859-1881), a deeply mythologized young man who became a legend in his own time and yet remains an enigma to this day. With the Gilded Age in full swing and the Industrial Revolution reshaping the American landscape, "the Kid," who was gunned down by Sheriff Pat Garrett in the New Mexico Territory at the age of 21, became a new breed of celebrity outlaw. He arose amid the mystery and myth of the swiftly vanishing frontier and, sensationalized beyond recognition by the tabloids and dime-store romances of the day, emerged as one of the most enduring icons of the American West--not to mention one of Hollywood's most misrepresented characters. This new biography, filled with dozens of rare images and period photographs, separates myth from reality in its portrait of this brief and violent life.--From publisher description

The Lincoln Highway : coast to coast from Times Square to the Golden Gate by Michael Wallis ( Book )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
" The best-selling author of Route 66 and a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer celebrate America's first transcontinental highway in all its neon glory. It began in 1913 with a glorious new highway--stretching across 3,389 miles and 13 states--that connected the bright lights of Broadway with the foggy shores of San Francisco. It was a magnificent and meandering road that enticed millions of newly motoring Americans to hop into their Model Ts and explore the fading frontier. The Lincoln Highway. It was the road of Gettysburg, Pretty Boy Floyd, Notre Dame, the Great Salt Lake, and the Gold Rush Trail. Once a symbol of limitless potential, it is now undergoing (as Route 66 did twenty years ago) a miraculous revival. With hundreds of new and rare photographs provided by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Michael S. Williamson, this ode to a bygone era guides us across the true spine of the country, exploring vintage diners, Art Deco buildings, and funky roadside attractions, all waiting to be discovered."--Publisher's website

A Route 66 companion ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Even before there was a road, there was a route. Buffalo trails, Indian paths, the old Santa Fe trace--all led across the Great Plains and the western mountains to the golden oasis of California. America's insatiable westering urge culminated in Route 66, the highway that ran from Chicago to Los Angeles. Opened in 1926, Route 66 became the quintessential American road. It offered the chance for freedom and a better life, whether you were down-and-out Okies fleeing the Dust Bowl in the 1930s or cool guys cruising in a Corvette in the 1960s. Even though the interstates long ago turned Route 66 into a bylane, it still draws travelers from around the world who long to experience the freedom of the open road. A Route 66 Companion gathers fiction, poetry, memoir, and oral history to present a literary historical portrait of America's most storied highway. From accounts of pioneering trips across the western plains to a sci-fi fantasy of traveling Route 66 in a rocket, here are stories that explore the mystique of the open road, told by master storytellers ranging from Washington Irving to Raymond Chandler, Joan Didion, Sylvia Plath, Leslie Marmon Silko, and John Steinbeck. Interspersed among them are reminiscences that, for the first time, honor the varied cultures--Native American, Mexican American, and African American, as well as Anglo--whose experiences run through the Route 66 story like the stripe down the highway. So put the top down, set the cruise control, and "make that California trip" with A Route 66 Companion"--P. [4] of cover

The Wild West--365 days by Michael Wallis ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"...A compendium that flows chronologically from 1830 to 1930 with each day providing a concise text and accompanying images. The daily entries found at the top of the pages are generally not connected to the tale told by the main text and images, but constitute a separate running diary of incidents or events that actually happened on that specific date. A landmark event or a particularly compelling personality may get fleshed out by more than one entry in these pages. Each stands on its own as a complete vignette, but for those readers who choose to go through the book in order from January 1 to December 31, an epic tale will unfold ..."--P. 4
