High Noon in LincolnHigh Noon in Lincoln

Violence on the Western Frontier

Robert M. Utley

Narrated by Bill Pryce

Available from Audible

Book published by University of New Mexico Press

Here is the most detailed and most engagingly narrated history to date of the legendary two-year facedown and shootout in Lincoln. Until now, New Mexico's late nineteenth-century Lincoln County War has served primarily as the backdrop for a succession of mythical renderings of Billy the Kid in American popular culture.

Robert M. Utley is a retired Chief Historian of the National Park Service and has written over fifteen books on a variety of aspects of history of the American West. His writings have received numerous prizes, including the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Center's Wrangler Award, the Western Writers of American Spur Award, the Caughey Prize from the Western History Association, and the Samuel Eliot Morison Prize from the Society for Military History.


“In research, writing, and interpretation, High Noon in Lincoln is a superb book. It is one of the best books (maybe the best) ever written on a violent episode in the West.”

—Richard Maxwell Brown, author of Strain of Violence: Historical Studies of America Violence and Vigilantism

“A masterful account of the actual facts of the gory Lincoln County War and the role of Billy the Kid.... Utley separates the truth from legend without detracting from the gripping suspense and human interest of the story.”

—Alvin M. Josephy, Jr.
