Frederick Nolan

Some called Frederick Nolan the Godfather of Billy the Kid history books.

The English writer had a personal and professional background that was as far away as the notorious New Mexico outlaw’s life as day is from night.

But he formed a connection to the Kid through another Englishman — John Henry Tunstall, one of the major players in the Lincoln County War.
