Wetmore, Helen Cody  
Buffalo Bill: Last of the Great Scouts. The Life Story of Colonel WilliamF. Cody
 Picture
Publisher: Lincoln 1989.
Fine with no dust jacket; New book. University of Nebraska Press Second Edition; Sixth Printing Paperback 8vo; 290 pages; This biography by his sister was first published in 1899, and portrays both the man and the legend. Mrs. Wetmore gives a full account of Bill's early years, and offers many tidbits of his adult life that are not widely known, such as his experiences as a Union Army spy, a land speculator, a hotelkeeper, and a justice of the peace. He liked to conclude his marriage ceremonies with the words: 'Whom God and Buffalo Bill hath joined together, let no man put asunder.' The book is entertaining as well as informative. In his introduction, historian Donald F. Danker casts doubt on the author's declaration that she had so many facts she had no thought of fiction. He states she embellished the truth somewhat to keep the legend of her brother alive and well.; ISBN: 0803252153
