Joining us at the 2010 Old West Show will be noted Buffalo Bill historian Steve Friesen, who will be signing copies of his new book, “Buffalo Bill: Scout, Showman, Visionary.” The book takes a different approach than previous biographies, examining Buffalo Bill’s life from a material culture/history perspective, based on the author’s 35 years of research.
Mr. Friesen is the Director of the Buffalo Bill Museum in Golden, Colorado, a position he has held for nearly 15 years. Considered a leading authority on Buffalo Bill, Mr. Friesen’s book is the culmination of decades of research and writing about the famous figure, including numerous exhibits, articles, and appearances in videos and on television. This book, lavishly illustrated with historic photographs, as well as images of Buffalo Bill memorabilia, promises to be the definitive guide for scholars, fans and enthusiasts of the legendary showman.
Come meet the author (who also contributed the photography for the book), and purchase your signed copy at the Old West Show, June 25 - 27, 2010 at the Denver Merchandise Mart. And while you’re in town, check out the Buffalo Bill Museum & Grave in Golden, Colorado: www.buffalobill.org
