Product Details


“Eric Vuillard uses musing prose to try to get inside the heads of Cody and of the Native Americans who performed in his shows, reenacting false versions of their experiences and creating an alternative history in the process. . . [Vuillard uses a] poetic style that conveys how the show shaped ideas about the West long after the frontier was gone.” — Foreword Reviews

“A swift and engrossing postmodern interrogation of the brutal cost of manufacturing myth… an attempt to see a fraction of the story of native North America more honestly than that story has been seen in decades and centuries past.” New Statesman

“Perhaps the shortest and most intense book on the Wild West ever published.” Times Literary Supplement
