Books by Frank Christianson

Released: Oct. 1, 2011

A scholarly edition of the original 1879 autobiography by William Frederick Cody (1846-1917), who in his lifetime became perhaps the most famous American in the world.

Editor Christianson (English/BYU; Philanthropy in British and American Fiction: Dickens, Hawthorne, Eliot and Howells, 2008) offers a useful introduction and a number of appendixes and illustrations to illuminate Cody's celebrated text: photographs, chronology, letters and even an excerpt from one of Ned Buntline's risible dime novels about Cody.
