“I could never resist the call of the trail.” — Buffalo Bill
The Buffalo Bill Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody includes all things Buffalo Bill, including the press he used when starting the Cody Enterprise newspaper in the late 1800s, which is still published today.
Colonel William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody was most famous for Wild West shows that were watched with eager anticipation by millions of people in the United States and Europe. In 1920, he published an autobiography with the title The Life and Adventures of Buffalo Bill. You can find it at https://archive.org/details/autobiographyofb00buff, thanks to archive.org.
His life was a wild ride, to say the least. He was an opera house performer, a gold seeker, a Pony Express rider, a bison hunter…go to the museum and you’ll see what all else he accomplished.
You can also visit his ranch house in Nebraska. Find information at http://outdoornebraska.gov/buffalobillranch.
