    1. Estleman is a wonder. This novel based on the life of Buffalo Bill Cody, is an entertaining portrayal of a larger-than-life man who didn’t know the meaning of excess.

They start in 1854 with his boyhood, when Cody witnessed the murder of his abolitionist father in Kansas, and ends with his own death in Denver in 1917.The novel teems with figures from frontier history: Wild Bill Hickock, Sitting Bull, George Armstron [...]


    2. This was pretty good. It was a fictional account of his life based on the real events. I wish there had been pictures though, I always enjoy seeing them.
