Why did Bill Cody feel the need to tell tall tales about his career when he wasn't the charlatan that many trackers and guides were? Cody had that need to be larger than life and learned by observing people like P. T. Barnum that a little bit of truth and a lot of hokum go a long way.

The book arrived on time and in excellent (like new) condition.
It will take me a while read the whole book. It is the kind that you can leave and get back to easily.
Anyone with an interest in the West at this time as well as the man would get a lot out of reading this book.
If you're especially interested in the subject, the book is indispensable, but if you just want a calm and fairly even-handed introduction to Buffalo Bill Cody, try Don Russell's excellent biography, which may give Bill too much of the benefit of the doubt but is a lot more fun to read.
