 Listen Podcast

(Up to Date, 3-4-10) Steve Kraske talks with historian, author and musician Mark Lee Gardener about his book To Hell on a Fast Horse: Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, and the Epic Chase to Justice in the Old West.

We examine the dual biography documenting Sheriff Pat Garrett's hunt for the iconic outlaw Billy the Kid.

Gardener discusses the Kid's roguish past, and his acquaintance whose job was to bring justice - figures who would not have become famous without the other.

Gardner gives a new look at these two men, their relationship, and their epic ride to immortality.
