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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a fun and quick read. As it was written by Cody's adoring little sister, it goes a bit overboard praising his bravery, loyalty, ingenuity, and other attributes. A 19th century work, it is not totally "politically correct." Yet sometimes, Mrs. Wetmore is touchingly sympathetic to Native Americans and Blacks. After this book, I am curious to read a more critical evaluation of Cody's life. He must have been a very brave and intelligent man, but I'd like to know how young he really was when he rode for the pony express, if he actually spied on General Forrest and just how impertinently he spoke to the Prince of Wales.
