Buffalo Bill wasn't always a world-famous legend. Before he was everyone's favorite Pony Express rider and star of his own Wild West Show, Bill was a real pioneer: a boy who hopped on a wagon and blazed a new trail with his Ma, Pa, and sisters.

And a wild ride it is! The frontier is packed with real-life adventures more exciting than Bill had ever imagined. He learns how to break a wild pony with the help of a genuine mustanger and even builds a cabin with nothing but an ax, a hammer, and some nails. But the west is a dangerous place, and Bill has to find out the hard way just how wild it can be.

The first book in an ongoing adventure series about young Buffalo Bill, To the Frontier sweeps readers back into the exciting and troubled world of America's frontier past.
