Buckskins, Bullets, and Business: A History of Buffalo Bill's Wild West

By Sarah J. Blackstone | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY
Primary source material for research on this topic is so scattered and so varied that I have chosen not to list each individual item, but rather to include a short listing of collections and types of materials that researchers might find useful.The three major public collections of Wild West materials are held by the Denver Public Library in Denver, Colorado; the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, Wisconsin; and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming. Additional material on the 101 Wild West and Pawnee Bill's Wild West can be found in the University of Oklahoma archives in Norman, Oklahoma. There are many private collections mostly held as part of larger circus collections that contain varying amounts of primary material as well.This primary source material falls into five main categories:
1. Material printed by the show, such as programs, couriers, route books, and various souvenir booklets
2. Contemporary newspaper accounts found in the many volumes of scrapbooks kept by Cody and other members of the Wild West companies (most are in the collections of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center)
3. Personal remembrances of people who traveled with or saw the show such as oral history tapes, letters, or manuscripts
4. Ledger books, financial statements, and checks
5. Photographs and film footage of the show

Hundreds of volumes have been written about William F. Cody and all of them contain some measure of information on the Wild West. Several excellent and exhaustive bibliographies of this material already exist and it seems needless to include all my references here. Instead I have chosen to include only a few listings that will prove most useful to an interested reader.

The most useful references for any scholar studying the Wild West are Mr. Don Russell two books The Lives and Legends of Buffalo Bill ( Norman, Okla.: Univ. of Oklahoma Press, 1960) and The Wild West: AHistory of Wild West Shows
