A Tale of Murder, Betrayal and the Creation of Buffalo Bill

Ned Buntline

Perhaps best known for putting Buffalo Bill on the world stage. Buntline was one of the most creative writers of his time, in addition to being an inveterate liar, bigamist, drunken advocate of temperance and opportunist. Bricklin’s biography entertainingly introduces us to this colorful figure. ~ Steve Friesen, author, historian, and Director (ret.), Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave
