PostSubject: George W. Coe..some final thoughts   Mon Aug 17, 2009 2:55 am

Well, today I finished reading "Frontier fighter" by George W. Coe and I am really glad I bought this fine little Lakeside Press edition because it turned out to be much more than just another "Billy the Kid" book. Oh sure, BTK obviously played a very prominent part in Coe's autobiography and Coe's devotion to the kid, I believe may have slanted some of the telling of the story of the LCW but the very thoughtful editing corrected most of the miscues. The historical introduction by Professor Doyce Nunis was a wonderfully concise primer for the LCW novice who wanted the history told as historically correct as possible in just a few pages.
Having said all that, it was however the final 3 chapters that I enjoyed the most (and I won't spoil it for you future readers of the book) because it dealt with a humble man who not only survived the LCW, but went on to live a full and fruitful life. The very last chapter gives the greatest insight into the true spirit and humbleness of this gentleman from New Mexico. If you truly value the book for it's authenticity and insight into the LCW and seek to truly appreciate the character of George W. Coe then you'll have invested some truly good reading time that you'll not soon forget.

As a side note, Marcelle would you consider adding a "book" section to the forum. With the talent this board has, there must be many other readers who would love to share their thoughts and suggestions on books that woud interest all of us.

Bronte...I believe you'll realy enjoy it...I also recommend Frontier Doctor by Henry Hoyt...another former friend of Billy's who was also a very fascinating fellow in his own right.
