The events of February 18, 1878, marked the
beginning of what became
> known as the Lincoln County War and catapulted Susan McSween and a
> cowboy named Henry McCarty, alias Billy the Kid, into the history
> books. The so-called war, a fight for control of the mercantile
> of southeastern New Mexico, is one of the most documented conflicts in
> the history of the American West, but it is an event that until now
> been interpreted through the eyes of men. As a woman in a man's
> Susan McSween has been all but ignored. This is the first book to
> her in a larger context. Clearly, the Lincoln County War was not her
> finest hour, just her best known. For decades afterward, she ran a
> successful cattle ranch. She watched New Mexico modernize and become
> state. And she lived to tell the tales of the anarchistic territorial
> period many times.
