Summary:

Buffalo Bill was arguably, the most recognized man in the world when he penned this book. The first four stories are of some of his adventures and the remaining 6 are autobiographical. All of them have been proved to be historically accurate in all important aspects. From his service as chief scout for the 3rd Cavalry during the plains wars, to his pony express service and finally the story of how he got his nickname "Buffalo Bill", everything is larger than life. Killing 4,280 buffalo in 18 months for the railroad workers was an amazing feat. Follow along as he tells of his Indian campaigns and then his world famous "Wild West Show" later in life. The foreword gives a brief summary of this man's amazing life. He respected the Indians and urged equal rights for women, something amazing in itself for his time. (Summary by Phil Chenevert)

    I didn't like having each chapter read by a different person. It just didn't work to have a woman reading the story of Buffalo Bill. And the chapter read by the person from Budapest, Hungary, was terrible! His accent was very thick and many words were mispronounced in such a way that I didn't know what he was saying. For instance, Sioux was "shoe", massacre was "mas-acker'" and any word with "th" was pronounced as though it began with a "d". (I finally gave up and skipped that chapter!)Another of the readers seemed to have emphysema or some other breathing problem which necessitated a long, loud inhale at the beginning of a sentence. Very distracting!

    The book was great, but the narration ruined it for me. I would gladly pay full price for this book for one narrator. Multiple narrators and one with such a strong accent it just turned me off to the chapter.
