Abstract:

Upton and Sons presents Letters from "Buffalo Bill," volume 8 in the Montana and the West Series. Abundant with history, author and editor Stella Foote brings the immortal Pahaska to life, along with other giants of the West: Annie Oakley, General Custer, Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show, Pawnee Chiefs, the Irma Hotel and the TE Ranch. The author has used unpublished manuscripts, interviews with Cody's niece, his sister Julia's diary, and of course, the letters of Buffalo Bill himself. Never before has Cody seemed so real. 37 photographs enhance this account, giving the reader an intimate portrait of Buffalo Bill. You will share Cody's grief over the tragic loss of his only son, observe his entrance into the theatrical world, follow the opening of his Wild West Show, and stand with him as he meets President Ulysses S. Grant. You will travel the world with Buffalo Bill, share his victories and losses, view his marriage and family, and suffer his illnesses. Lastly, you will witness Bill's emotional and financial exhaustion. 40 years of Cody's life are chronicled in these letters, giving the reader a fascinating and very personal portrait of the last of the great scouts. - Jacket flap.
