Overview

Who more than Buffalo Bill symbolizes the American West? William Frederick Cody (1846-1917) personified, packaged, and perpetuated the myth of the Wild West. This lively biography documents fully the events of his extraordinary career as a buffalo hunter, army scout, freighter, and guide on the Great Plains, and as a showman on two continents. More than 150 fully captioned historic photographs—many never before published—depict Buffalo Bill from his childhood days to his reign as a superlative actor and producer whose Wild West remains unique in the annals of show business. This volume preserves the color and spectacle of a bygone era—and, best of all, shows that that the real and heroic figure rivals the invented and legendary Buffalo Bill.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The authors are British journalists and American West aficionados. They've carefully researched the showman and his show and present the story here with numerous photos and somewhat adulatory text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
