By local Stamford, NY author, T.M. Bradshaw

A biography of E. Z. C. Judson (Ned Buntline), known as the "King of the Dime Novels." Buntline virtually created Buffalo Bill, writing him into novels and touring in a wildly successful stage show. Everything about Buntline was a contradiction: navy hero/army deserter; Temperance lecturer/heavy drinker; family man/bigamist; died at 63/hanged at 23. The opposite of everything known about Buntline is also true.
