As the cover and publication pages are missing, I do not know when or where or by whom this book was published but the Preface claims it was written by William Cody (Buffalo Bill). I believe the book is well over 100 years old and is one of my most prized possessions. Having spent several of my formative years living near Port Byron, Illinois, which is directly across the ...more

Though amazing his stories, I can not help but feel appalled by the disgusting anti-native american rhetoric. I really enjoy his stories of his early childhood in the Pony Express and his hunting trips, but some of the missions where he recounted attacking native American villages, were genocidal in nature and frankly, just plain evil.

Understanding that this was a different time, it is hard to believe the entire country would cheer for his "first Indian kill", as if it was in any shape or form,

This is a really fun to read book. Buffalo Bill chronicles the lives of Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Kit Carson, and himself. These guys had survival down, and I'm not sure how they made it out the other side in some of these encounters. Captured by Indians, attacked by bears, stuck in a fort during a big Indian raid, scouting through the uncharted areas of the US before it was from sea to shining sea. If you like adventure, then you will like this one.
