Meet the Author

William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody (1846-1917) was an American hunter, scout, soldier, promoter, and showman. A colorful Old West character, "Buffalo Bill" became internationally famous through his long-running Wild West Show. Born in Iowa Territory, Cody served as a teamster during the Civil War and later worked as a Buffalo hunter providing meat to crews building the Kansas Pacific Railroad. He earned his nickname by shooting over 4,000 animals in just a few months. He also served as a scout for the U.S. Army from 1868-1872, during which time he earned the Medal of Honor and developed a lasting respect for American Indians. Beginning in the 1870s, Cody appeared in several Wild West Shows, eventually founding Buffalo Bill’s Wild West, which was active from 1883-1914. The show toured Europe on several occasions and made Cody an international celebrity. The show helped to shape public perceptions of the American "Wild West."
