William Bonney, a.k.a. "Billy the Kid," killed his first man when he was twelve, and by the time he was twenty-one he had slain nineteen more. Drawing on contemporary accounts, period photographs, dime novels and his own imagination, Ondaatje imagines… Billy's passage across the blasted landscape of 1880s New Mexico and the collective unconscious of his country. A synthesis of storytelling, history, and myth. Winner of the 1970 Governor General's Award for Poetry. 2009.
