Beschreibung

" An excellent book based on exhaustive research and written with fresh insight. It is a spellbinding accomplishment and brings both the man and his era to life. . . . It is an extraordinary achievement."
– Arizona Daily Star " Carter presents this astounding tale in a very balanced fashion, providing both the nineteenth-century rationale and his repug-nance at acts today considered shocking. . . . Through Carter’ s writing, the heroic and ultimately sad life of a remarkable human being makes a deep impact."
– Richmond Times Dispatch " A comprehensive, sharply rendered life of showman William ‘ Buffalo Bill’ Cody pries realities away from legend. . . . A splendid portrait of Cody’ s life and times, at once poignant, boisterous, and disturbing."
– Kirkus Reviews (starred review) " There’ s a large audience for American, and particularly Western, history, and those readers will not want to miss this genial account."
– Publishers Weekly " This is the remarkable story of an amazing life. Cody not only lived the adventure of the frontier, he helped create the American West of the imagination. A fascinating story and a must-read for anyone interested in the evolution of the Western myth."
– CaseyTefertiller
