Buffalo Bill: Last of the Great Scouts is the entertaining and fascinating story of William F. Cody, known to millions for over a century as the legendary Buffalo Bill. He was active on the frontier for about a dozen years (1860-1872) and was an actor and showman in his world-touring "Wild West Show" for more than three decades afterward. Bill's sister, Helen Cody Wetmore, has written a forthright and affectionate biography that recalls fully both the man and the legend, his colourful personality and great ironic wit, as well as his celebrated international status. Engaging anecdotes from Buffalo Bill's early years are coupled with wonderful sidelights from his adult life, for example, his experiences as a Union Army spy, a land speculator, a hotelkeeper, and a justice of the peace. These pages also contain memorable glimpses of Buffalo Bill as a host to visiting potentates. Hilarious and informative, Buffalo Bill: Last of the Great Scouts introduces us to an unforgettable and controversial figure in American frontier history. This commemorative edition includes the full text of the original 1899 edition, a foreword and afterword by novelist Zane Grey, illustrations by Frederic Remington and E. W. Deming from a rare 1903 edition, and an introduction by scholar Joy S. Kasson. Helen Cody Wetmore was one of five sisters of Buffalo Bill and her book, Buffalo Bill: Last of the Great Scouts, was often sold at Buffalo Bill's Wild West shows. Joy S. Kasson is Chair of the American Studies Department at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She is the author of Buffalo Bill's Wild West: Celebrity, Memory, and Popular History.
