The events of February 18, 1878, marked the beginning of what became
> known as the Lincoln County War and catapulted Susan McSween and a young
> cowboy named Henry McCarty, alias Billy the Kid, into the history
> books.  The so-called war, a fight for control of the mercantile economy
> 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 has
> been interpreted through the eyes of men.  As a woman in a man's story,
> Susan McSween has been all but ignored.  This is the first book to place
> 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 a
> state.  And she lived to tell the tales of the anarchistic territorial
> period many times.
