About this title

Synopsis:

Life of Billy Dixon is a compelling narrative of the "wild, free life" on the Great Plains frontier. Ride with Billy Dixon to a high point on the plains and look out over a nearly solid mass of buffalo that stretches in every direction as far as the eye can see. Stand with Billy Dixon at Adobe Walls, in the unsettled Texas Panhandle, as hundreds of Comanche, Kiowa, and Cheyenne warriors on horseback charge out of the pre-dawn darkness toward a few dozen buffalo hunters. Crouch down in desperation with Billy Dixon at the Buffalo Wallow Fight as he and a few wounded and dying men lie in a shallow depression on the plains surrounded by howling Indians.

In the Life of Billy Dixon the Great Plains frontier is seen through the knowing eyes of a participant who lived that frontier experience and who fortunately left an accurate and engaging record for those who followed.

Review:

"Dixon wore many hats on the frontier, including that of a trapper, farmer, buffalo hunter, and cowboy, and he enjoyed them all. A facsimile of the 1927 original, this book conveys Dixon's enthusiasm for the wide-open West, telling of his hair-raising escapades in Indian battles as well as his calmer moments on the plains."
