The New Mexico tourist council would like you to be aware of the state’s rich Spanish heritage, and its role as a center of the arts, and so forth—but there’s no getting away from the tremendous bucktoothed specter of the world’s most famous outlaw. Robert M. Utley, author of a highly praised biography of the Kid, follows his trail from Santa Fe to Silver City.

We hope you enjoy our work.
