The Life and Wonderful Adventures of Wild  Bill (J. B. Hickock)

by James. W. Buel.

Author Buel was a newspaper man of Hickock's day and later one of Hickock's principal biographers, thus a source probably as close to the truth as we can get on the now legendary figure Wild Bill. Bill's reputation as a fighter emerged early in his career, and the fear that struck in the hearts of opponents helped him command many a situation before a showdown. But when one came, his courage was legend, as he was always willing to fight no matter the odds. He paid a price, though. He spent much of his life convalescing from bullet and knife wounds! While sheriff, he accidentally shot his deputy, and Wild Bill himself was finally assassinated while playing cards. Bill lived his life during the periods of the Civil War and the Indian Wars that followed, in the era of the Wild West as celebrated by Buffalo Bill's WildWest shows, and in which Wild Bill appeared for a time. Reprinted from Heroes of the West, 1881. Period drawings. 56 pages.
