Presenting Buffalo Bill
Presenting Buffalo Bill: The Man Who Invented the Wild West
Sibert Honor Book author Candace Fleming brings her customary intelligence, attention to detail, and wit to this fresh biography of America's first global superstar.
Everyone knows the name Buffalo Bill, but few these days know what he did or, in some cases, didn't do. Was he a Pony Express rider? Did he serve Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn? Did he scalp countless Native Americans, or did he defend their rights?
This, the first significant biography of Buffalo Bill Cody for younger readers in many years, explains it all. With copious archival illustrations and a handsome design, Presenting Buffalo Bill makes the great showman come alive for new generations. Extensive back matter, bibliography, and source notes complete the package.
Candace Fleming is the author of many acclaimed picture books and biographies for young readers, including Papa's Mechanical Fish, Oh, No!, and the recent, highly awarded The Family Romanov, which received six starred reviews, was named a Sibert Honor, and won both the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award and the NCTE Orbis Pictus.
