Reviews

"Fleming's even-handed biography of William Cody, the "hardscrabble frontiersman who became America's legendary showman," is more than just the story of a larger-than-life figure."--Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"Fans of Fleming's The Family Romanov (BCCB 9/14) may marvel at the abrupt bounce from Russian Revolution to Wild West, but those who appreciate her authorial craftsmanship will recognize that she makes each of these great stories a window into countless others."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"Fleming begins each chapter with a scene fromthe "Wild West" show, using the theatrical production to introduce a time periodin Cody's life, which, unadorned, is still fascinating as this man with a hardscrabble
childhood makes and loses several fortunes over his lifetime."--The Horn Book, starred review


"A thoroughly engaging portrait of a fascinating, larger-than-life figure."--Kirkus Reviews

"An illuminating look at an American legend."--Booklist
