The greatest adventure story of all time is the story of the American West and the men who won its untold riches for America. Of all the scouts whose unflinching courage blazed the trail of that wilderness, the most celebrated was William Cody, better known as Buffalo Bill. William F. Cody was born in the middle of the nineteenth century on the plains of Kansas Territory where his family had settled to trade with the friendly Kickapoo Tribe. These Natives were Bill's childhood playmates and at a tender age he traded his brand-new buckskin suit for a little wild Indian pony that he learned to ride like the wind. By the time he was twelve, he was doing the work of a grown man as a cattle driver, camping under the stars each night. When he was caught in a buffalo stampede his horsemanship saved his life. Then he met wilderness scout Kit Carson who taught him how to read the language of the plains. When daredevil riders were needed to carry the mail on the new Pony Express, Bill was one of the first to sign up. Then the Civil War began and Bill went East to fight for Kansas, since that state wanted nothing to do with slavery. Beautifully illustrated, this classic tale will capture children's interest and spark their imagination inspiring a lifelong love of literature and reading.

The story of the Oregon Trail is adapted from a book, which itself retells the stories from the real life diaries of American Frontiersman, Francis Parkman. As a bold young man, looking to make his way in the settling of America, Parkman took it upon himself to befriend Whirlwind, Chieftain of the Dacotah native tribe. Parkman lived among the Dacotah, as one of them, learning a way to live in peace with nature and respect of his fellow man, no matter the color of his skin. He did see a fair bit of action and danger too. Although the Dacotah lived peaceably with each other, they were often at war with neighboring tribes. Their bitterest rivals were the Snake tribe, who the Dacotah enter into a bitter feud with after they kill Whirlwind's son in battle. The Oregon Trail not only gives you a glimpse into Native American culture, but tells the true story of how one man lived amongst and learned from them, ultimately making his mark trying to negotiate peace and fairness between warring tribes as well as the white man and American government. The Oregon Trail is a true story full of frontier action and adventure. Beautifully illustrated, a classic you will enjoy and treasure.
