Of all the men who rode with Billy the Kid, one of the least well-know is Henry Newton Brown. Brown broke with Billy the Kid and for a time served as an assistant marshal of Tascaso, Texas. Restless and looking for a better life, Brown ended up in Caldwell, Kansas in where he became an assistant marshal and eventually, after Bat Carr was fired, he became the marshal, of the cowtown known as the Border Queen.

Sure that his past had been safely left in New Mexico, he began to settle-in as a respected citizen of Caldwell. He was honored with the gift of an engraved Winchester as a token of the town's appreciation. A short time later, he married a local school teacher, purchased a house, and then his past caught up with him and he discovered that life is full of choices, and always with a "passel of consequences."


Troy Boucher grew up in a small, western Oklahoma town on what was once a large Cheyenne-Arapaho reservation. As a child he spent his time watching western movies on Saturday afternoons, reading Zane Grey novels, and wanting to grow up to be a cowboy. Most of his adult life has been spent teaching writing and American literature in a small private college. He enjoys writing, reading, gardening, and traveling with his wife to interesting places in the plains states and other areas of the country. His short stories have appeared in Cottonwood Magazine, Square One, Ellipsis, Kansas Stories, 1989, and The Chiron Review. His short story "Pocket Money" won first place in the Bob Gross Fiction Contest sponsored by Woodley Press.
