Item Details
Description
For your consideration is this 1899 first edition copy of “Last of the Great Scouts: Life Story of Co. W.F. Cody (Buffalo Bill)” written by Helen Cody Wetmore. William F. Cody was known as the legendary Buffalo Bill. Born in a log cabin in Iowa, he was a buffalo hunter, stagecoach driver, Pony Express rider, Civil War soldier, and a scout for the U.S. army before beginning his career as the star of Buffalo Bill's Wild West, which electrified audiences around the world from 1883 to 1917. Bill's sister, Helen Cody Wetmore, writes an affectionate biography that recalls the man and the legend, his colorful personality and ironic wit, as well as his celebrated international status. Before becoming a showman, Cody tried his luck as a land speculator, a hotelkeeper, and a justice of the peace. These pages also show the author herself growing up on the wild frontier. "Buffalo Bill" introduces us to an unforgettable and controversial figure in American frontier history. The condition of this book is good, with some wear to binding consistent with its age. The pages also show browning consistent with age. The measurements of this book are 8 3/4" x 6".
