Buffalo Bill's British Wild West


The flamboyant showman Buffalo Bill was legendary in his time for spellbinding re-creations of life on the American frontier, and during his three-decade career he made four extremely successful tours of Great Britain. This history—which includes 16 pages of color illustrations and dozens more in black and white— details how Wild West mania swept the UK, enchanting both the public and royalty alike. Here too are the troupe's equal and opposite misfortunes, including a severe gale that nearly wrecked the show, the deaths of two of their Native American members, and Buffalo Bill falling in love with a young actress.
