GOOD: The overall condition of this book is good. The pen and ink drawings are still well defined and the picture plates are still clear. The pages have yellowed as can be expected from a book of this age. There is, however, a tear in the picture plate on the front cover which can be repaired by a professional.
“This autobiography tells in his own graphic words the wonderful story of his heroic career. His story shows his devotion to duty as a child when supporting his widowed mother, his valuable services to the government while riding in the famous ‘Pony Express’ and vividly portrays his thrilling experiences as hunter and scout while acting as Guide to the Army and trains of prairie schooners—his many hair-breadth escapes in his fights with Indians, desperadoes and while hunting buffalo and other wild animals, as well as his later triumphs in conducting the tours of his great wild west exhibition in the United States and Europe.”—from the title page
