Hampton Sides says in a promotional dust jacket blurb, "Gardner's research is so richly detailed, you can almost smell the gunsmoke and the sweat of the saddles." David Dary says, "A masterpiece! Mark Gardner's dual biography of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett cuts through the myth to tell the real story of two real figures in the Wild West. Gardner's scholarship is superb. This work can only be called a classic." Robert M. Utley says, "Incredibly deep research combines with the talents of a fine historian and writer to produce superb narrative history."
