Life of "Billy" Dixon : plainsman, scout, and pioneer

"Dixon wore many hats on the frontier, including that of a trapper, farmer, buffalo hunter, and cowboy, and he enjoyed them all. A facsimile of the 1927 original, this book conveys Dixon's enthusiasm for the wide-open West, telling of his hair-raising escapades in Indian battles as well as his calmer moments on the plains."--American West

A first hand account of life on the plains as a buffalo hunter, which includes detailed descriptions of such historic events as Adobe Walls and the Buffalo Wallow Fight. Fortunately Billy Dixon left us this exciting and accurate account of life on the plains for all readers to experience.

This original 1927 edition has been professionally converted and designed to take advantage of the capabilities of modern day e-readers. Since it is not merely a scanned reproduction, the reader is able to experience the exact words and "flavor" of the original book, yet have the advantages of a text that is easy to read and fully functional with today's e-reader.
