The Wild West came alive under the pen of Edward Zane Carroll Judson, who wrote many of America's best-loved  “dime novels ”under the pseudonym Ned Buntline. From Buffalo Bill (whom Judson knew first-hand) to Wild Bill Hickok, these vivid tales feature some of the most colorful characters on the American landscape.  This anthology gathers a selection of his best-loved work, including four full-length unabridged novels, each with an introduction by author and critic Clay Reynolds. Stories include:
Buffalo Bill, the King of Border Men, or The Wildest and Truest Tale I've Ever Told
 Hazel-Eye, the Girl Trapper, or A Tale of Strange Young Life
The Miner Detective; or, the Ghost of the Gulch
Wild Bill's Last Trail
