Overview

In a remarkable early life as an Indian scout, trapper, miner & rider for the Pony Express, William F. Cody developed a reputation for courage. Yet it was as a buffalo hunter that Cody gained his nickname of Buffalo Bill. So powerful had the myth of the Wild West become, that he was able to turn his life into a theatrical spectacular which toured the U.S. & Europe. He almost single-handedly invented the Wild West that later generations have come to know through films & TV. Codys autobiography vividly relates the excitement of this wild frontier. This is a facsimile of his original publication with illustrations.
