Adventure! Danger! In this story, we discover how William Cody, the man became Buffalo Bill, the legend. His career as a showman lasted over 30 years following an extraordinary life on the American frontier. He was an Indian scout and guide and lived a life of adventure that others only dreamed about. But when novelists told thrilling tales about him--and added some details of their own-- the line between the man and the legend began to blur. He wasn't perfect, but his good looks, gracious personality, and innate showmanship, combined with great publicity and business managers, came together to create Buffalo Bill, America's first celebrity superstar. In this eBook, you will explore how he marketed the vanishing western frontier into the formula for western movies and television shows for decades to come. Like all History Heights eBooks, The Story of William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody, America's First Celebrity Superstar works on all PDF-compatible devices. The recommended minimum reading level is late elementary/middle grades, but this story is great fun as a read-aloud book for all ages. Perfect for life-long learners, too!
