The Life of Buffalo Bill: The Life and Adventures of William F. Cody, as Told by Himself The Life of Buffalo Bill: The Life and Adventures of William F. Cody, as Told by Himself
William F. Cody

What a life! Cody was born in 1845, during the period of the great Westward migrations, and lived right in the middle of it all. Pioneers, horse thieves, cattle rustlers, Indians, soldiers, scouts, and hunters -- Cody knew them all and they're all here. He led wagon trains, drove stage coaches, and rode for the pony express. He was a scout for the Union during the Civil War, and got his name for his skill in buffalo hunting. He knew Wild Bill Hickock and Kit Carson. Some of his tales may be tall, but for sheer excitement and the "romance of the Wild West" this book is hard to beat. Read More...

"This curious and staunch little craft, though only twelve feet in length, proved a most comfortable and serviceable home while the author rowed in it more than 2600 miles down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, and along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, until he reached the goal of his voyage--the mouth of the wild Suwanee River."

W. H. Edwards

He made it back and published one of the first adventures about anacondas, piranhas, electric eels, and army ants -- as well as the richness of the jungle and peculiarities of the native societies. This very book inspired Bates and Wallace to go to the Amazon the following year, "to solve the problem of the origin of the species." Read More...
