William F. Cody, aka ‘Buffalo Bill’ was the man who almost single-handedly created the legend of the Wild West. Starting his career at the tender age of 11, he was successively a rodeo rider, Pony Express courier, a US Army Scout in both the American Civil and Indian wars, a Buffalo/Bison hunter, and finally a master showman who in the 1880s–90s took his Wild West Show featuring cowboys, Indians and other components of the legend, on hugely successful tours across America and Europe. This charming period piece of a book, first published in 1904, recounts his adventures fighting the Sioux Plains Indians who later became a popular feature of his travelling shows.
