Great book, well worth reading, lots of stories I have never heard and most were just like you were in the old west while reading.

I got this for my dad who is 81. He loved it and could not put it down. Read the whole thing in 1 1/2 days.

My husband and I love to study, read, and review history. Buffalo Bill was and is one of our favorite subjects. The fact that this book was complied by his very own little sister was a real selling point.
Thank you for bring the legend to life in a special way through this book.

Don't let Zane Grey's name fool you into anything, as he only wrote an introduction and an afterward to the book. He had nothing to do with the story of Buffalo Bill; the contents were written by his sister and published as a book several times befoe Zane Grey's name was added to the cover. I suspect it was done so to help make the book sell even more copies, as were illustrations by Fredrick Remmington placed in an edition of this book at one time. The historical accuracy of this book is also suspect in some things, and Helen Cody Wetmore's older sister even published a book many years later in an attempt to correct some of those inaccuracies. But having said that, this book will give you a loving account of man by his adoring sister, and will give you much of what really did happen to him. Buffalo Bill Cody was indeed an important man of the nineteenth century and help make the West what it still is today.
BUFFALO BILL CODY thought BIG, fought BIG and lived BIG enough to become the world's most popular showman for much of a generation. This book, written by his sister, gives detailed insights which explain how and why Cody became an American icon and a world-wide sensation. His marriage seemed the only sad chapter of his life; otherwise, no one ever has lived quite as cool (and as full) as Buffalo Bill.
