Gr 3-5A history of Wild West shows from 1883 through World War I, beginning with biographical information about Buffalo Bill, the creator of this famed institution. The facts are clearly stated, and interest is maintained throughout as descriptions of such colorful personalities as Annie Oakley, Pawnee Bill, and others are presented. The importance of heralds, circus paper, couriers, and billboards; and the role of women and Native Americans in Wild West shows are all clearly explained. This volume is replete with black-and-white reproductions, many of which are full page; colorful photographs; advertising posters; and memorabilia that will fascinate young audiences.Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY
