Read in December, 2008

I loved this book. Estleman toggles between the story of Pat Garrett, who killed William Bonney (aka Billy the Kid), and that of a 100-year-old plus Native American medicine man and mystic who offered Garrett a potion to help stop Garrett's nightmares after he shoots Bonney.

I hate to admit it, but I really like a good western and this is a great one. I also really enjoyed Ron Hansen's "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford." I'm not going to read Zane Grey, but hope to find more novels like this one.
