ver 100 books and articles have been written about the man who made the Wild Westcome alive, “The Many Loves of Buffalo Bill” by Chris Enss adds another dimension tothe stories about the life of William F. Cody. He was a showman extraordinaire, a scoutfor the United States Government, a soldier in the Civil War, an Indian fighter, and aboveall, he loved the ladies.Chris Enss, who has written many books about western culture, its people, and the livesof many interesting personages of the old west, has assembled a succinctly remarkablecharacterization of who ‘Buffalo Bill’ really was. He was a family man, a showman, anda person who was able to take care of business. According to Annie Oakley, who was astar performer for 17 years in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, “His words were better than most written contracts.”
Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show traveled around the world and gave audiences in Europeand the United States a taste of the ‘Wild West’. This all took place in the late 1800’s andearly 1900’s. His troupe had several hundred members who roped, rode horses, anddemonstrated shooting acuity. His people were extremely loyal to him and stayed withthe show for years.One of the most interesting facts about his life is that in the span of 50 years of marriage,he attempted to divorce his wife Louisa twice. The contested divorce trial ended with theJudge not granting the parties what they had sought. In later years they reconciled their differences, but the jealousy of his philandering in many dalliances with young ladieskept his wife on a suspicious crusade to catch him by hiring a private detective.Quoting from the trial transcripts and other documentation, we are made privy to many of Louisa Cody’s witnesses’ statements about some of the women he dallied with. With analmost puritanical recitation of facts, we are told of his affairs with Indian maidens,theatrical ingénues, and some pretty interesting ladies of the evening.Buffalo Bill Cody outlived his children and died at the age of 70 in 1917. He lived anexciting life that took him through an untamed land in the old west as a pioneer in adeveloping civilization.He was instrumental in the settling of the ‘Wild West’ and was one of its last glamorousheroes of a by-gone generation. He became well known across the world as he mingledwith Kings, Queens, and other royalty of Europe. His life as depicted in this non-fictionaccount was about bravery, honesty, and courage that made him a righteous man eventhough he had an eye for the ladies. His love of this land was more important than hisindiscretions.The legendary career of Buffalo Bill Cody, the only Western Hero mentioned in Who’sWho in America, makes this book a must read.= 30 =
