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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This fascinating picture of Cody's life, times, and contributions should have a great deal of popular appeal."--David Dary, author of Cowboy Culture: A Saga of Five Centuries and The Buffalo Book
"This is the best brief treatment of Cody's early career that we have, while the more detailed discussion of the Wild West offers much of interest to historians of the Western myth. The photographs, a selection from the vast number available, are well-chosen and handsomely reproduced."--Journal of Arizona History

"A significant contribution to the literature on Cody and the imagery of the American West."--Utah Historical Quarterly
