The Champion Buffalo Hunter: The Frontier Memoirs of Yellowstone Vic Smith

SKU: 1560445866
Writing in the third person, Smith, a.k.a. "Yellowstone Vic," relates his adventures as an Indian fighter, hide hunter, guide, trick shot, and trapper across the American frontier during the 1870s to 1890s. A reticent man, Smith often discusses other people rather than himself in his writing. Familiar names such as Col. Nelson A. Miles, General Alfred Terry, George Armstrong Custer, Buffalo Bill Cody, and Theodore Roosevelt, as well as the not-so-famous, fill the pages of this narrative, which was discovered in 1990 at Harvard's Houghton Library by editor and researcher Prodgers (The Only Good Bear Is a Dead Bear: A Collection of the West's Best Bear Stories, Falcon, 1986). Smith's humor, cliches, prejudices, and fondness for storytelling are not missing from this edition, with endnotes enhancing and complementing the text. Recommended for all libraries.?Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley Coll., Mt. Carmel, Ill.
