With a whoop and a holler in rides one of the most colorful, exciting personalities of American frontier history. Boys have always loved him, and here is a book to bring him vividly to life in his time and place. Colonel Wm. Cody was brought up in a time of lawless revolt, massacre and bloody feuding for slave-versus anti-slavery possession of Kansas. His family was anti-slavery and his father's early death was due to the violence of his enemies. Buffalo Bill became head of the family and bread-winner at an early age. He loved horses and know them; he could shoot and fight and hunt and ride. This famous scout became a legend in his own time and this is his story.
