Sister, Billy the Kid, and Me

James P. Mesker

  • Sister, Billy the Kid, and Me

I had to know the truth about my second grade teacher. Could it really be true…was my teacher a famous nun.... and what was she doing here?

In Sister, Billy the Kid, and Me author James P. Mesker nostalgically recalls his Catholic elementary school experiences in rural Ohio in the 1950s. Does his teacher's, aging Sister Mary Blandine, utterances about Billy the Kid and his contemporaries mean that she could be the Sister Blandina Segale who met Billy the Kid back in the 1870s' Old West and authored At the End of the Santa Fe Trail published in 1932?

James's preoccupation with the Wild West and youthful imagination create intrigue and mystery surrounding the identity of his teacher. When he finally musters up the courage to ask the elderly nun if she truly met Billy the Kid, will Sister Mary reveal the truth to James?
