. . .Ninth Kansas Cavalry. The Kiowas and Comanches were giving trouble along the old Santa Fe trail and among the settlements of western Kansas. The Ninth Kansas were sent to tame them and to protect immigrants and settlers.

This was work that I well understood. We had a lively summer, for the Indians kept things stirring, but after a summer of hard fighting we made them understand that the Great White Chief was a power that the Indians had better not irritate. November, '63, I returned with the command to Leavenworth. I had money in my pockets, for my pay had been $150 a month, and I was able to lay in an abundant supply of provisions for my family.

On the twenty-third day of December my mother passed away. Her life had been an extremely hard one, but she had borne up bravely under poverty and privation, supplying with her own teaching the education that the frontier schools could not give her children, and by her Christian example setting them all on a straight ro. . . Read More

After reading a biography of Buffalo Bill, it's even better to read Cody's own description. Opposite of the biography, Cody talks mostly about his childhood and scouting years, describing many adventurous expeditions, and only in the last chapter mentions the Wild West Show.

Riveting!

Buffalo Bill had the gift of storytelling, that's for sure. A must-read for anyone interested in the history of the Wild West.

I enjoyed reading this autobiography. It was well written and very exciting although it only covered the first part of his life.

I am not an American, but am nevertheless fascinated by this period in their history. It was a boiling pot of adventure and violence. This is one of those rare occasions in history where many factors came together to create the perfect environment for extreme heroism and evil to flourish.

I had no...more
