Well I stumbled on this radio interview from the author talking about the book but the text included with it recommending the book really annoyed me intensely. To read first nations plains people being referred to as " savage Indians " and for this reason entirely I would not advocate bothering to read this book. These people are still suffering extreme poverty and oppression today and in my view its shameful that Buffalo Bill built himself a name from a show that celebrated what was really was the attempted extermination of indigenous cultures.

It tells how Buffalo Bill and the wild west show went over seas, particularly to England. If you ever had a basic interest in the Wild West Show, you are bound to like this. I never even realized they left the country, but apparently there was a jubilee celebration for the Queen of England and they went there alright. Some of the more memorable parts are stories about some of the Indian chiefs, and other members of the company. It 'conveys' a sense of the operations of the the show, and gives you a sort of familiarity with the place, almost as if you, like many of the other crowd members were repeat visitors. It has a nice picture section with a lot of pictures. So basically, it probably might not change your life significantly, but for what it is, it is a really good book.
