Buffalo Bill Cody: The Man behind the Legend

By Robert A. Carter | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I have listed in the bibliography the many books that contributed to this volume but would like to single out two for special mention. They are Don Russell's The Lives and Legends of Buffalo Bill, which no writer on the Colonel could do without; and Nellie Snyder Yost's Buffalo Bill: His Fam/ ily, Friends, Fame, Failures, and Fortunes, for its mother lode of material about the lives of the Codys in North Platte, Nebraska. Two other vol/ umes have been especially helpful: Letters from “Buffalo Bill” by Stella Foote and The Business of Being Buffalo Bill: Selected Letters of William F. Cody, 1879–1917 by Sarah J. Blackstone.

Prominent among the many people to whom I owe my thanks are Byron Price, director; Paul Fees, curator; Frances Clyner, librarian; and Elizabeth Holmes, associate registrar, all of the Buffalo Bill Historical Cen/ ter in Cody, Wyoming. Lisa Backman of the Western History Department, Denver Public Library; Jeanie Cook of the Park County Archives, Cody, Wyoming; Graeme Rymer of the Royal Armouries, London; and Tom Mor/ rison, superintendent of Scout's Rest Ranch in North Platte, Nebraska, have been especially helpful in the course of my research, as has Ray Wem/ mingler, librarian and curator of the Hampden-Booth Library of The Play/ ers in New York. The Tuckahoe Branch of the Henrico County Library has been unflagging in supplying me with literature through the Inter/ Library Loan Program; thanks also to the Library of Virginia, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution, and the National Archives. I should also acknowledge the search engine yahoo!; the Internet has made writing a biography much easier.

On a personal note, I should like to thank Stanley R. Moore, Dr. Michael Rostafinski, and John Tebbel for advice and information; my wife and “first reader, ” Reade Johnson; and my editor at John Wiley, Hana Lane, for support and encouragement.
