WILD BILL The True Story of the American Frontier's First Gunfighter

by | Read by Johnny Heller

Biography & Memoir • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Johnny Heller does a fine job narrating Clavin's well-researched and entertaining biography of the famous Western lawman and scout Wild Bill Hickok. Sifting through the legends and folklore, Clavin presents the real Wild Bill, who was more than a dime-novel titan and every bit a larger-than-life character. An active participant in the "Bleeding Kansas" troubles, he served as a scout for the North in Kansas and Missouri during the Civil War before his postwar exploits. Heller has a clear voice and a somewhat staccato delivery that is a good match to the text. Easy to understand, he ensures that Western aficionados will enjoy listening to the life of Wild Bill.
