Buffalo Bill

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody was born in LeClaire, Iowa, in 1846. While he was still a child, his family moved to Leavenworth, Kansas. When he was only eleven years old, Cody left home to work on a wagon train crossing the Great Plains. After he made the trip several times, he tried fur trapping and gold mining. He joined the Pony Express in 1860.
 
2     After the Civil War was over, Cody scouted for the army. While he was working as a scout, he got his nickname, "Buffalo Bill", because he was such a good hunter.
 
3     Buffalo Bill's adventures in the Wild West became popular stories. Some of the stories were true, and some of the stories were tall tales. In 1872, a man wrote a book about him. This writer talked Buffalo Bill into starring in a stage show based on the book. Cody gave up his life in the West to become a stage performer for the next eleven years.
