Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show | American Experience | Official Site | PBS

Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show opened in London on May 9, 1887
Queen Victoria and her subjects their first look at a
version of the American West.

A well-known scout for the army and a buffalo hunter for the
railroads (which earned him his nickname), Cody had gained
national prominence 15 years earlier thanks to a fanciful novel
written by Edward Zane Carroll Judson. Writing under the pen
name Ned Buntline, Judson made Cody the hero of his highly sensationalized dime novel The Scouts of the Plains; or, Red
Deviltry As It Is
. In 1872, Judson also convinced Cody to travel
Chicago to star in a stage version of the book. Cody broke
with Judson after a year, but he enjoyed the life of a performer
and stayed on the stage for 11 seasons.
