Heroes of the Plains by James William Buel Book Review

This massive tome of ‘historical’ biographies includes every Western trope you have ever known. Published in 1883. It really is fun to read, a little tiresome after eleven hundred pages. The Mason author was tasked with making heroes out of all these secret society men. And they all ended up on the side of goodness and grace, doing their best to kill the indians.

Saloons, gambling, whiskey, overland dispatches, wagon trains, government forts, buffaloes, and killing indians.

Mostly killing indians.

The adventure of the west includes trapping, hunting, drinking whiskey, playing cards, riding horses and mules, marksmanship, and killing indians.

This is frontier land. Secret society touchstone for everything we were told about western expansion, the heroes of the day.

For example, Buffalo Bill kills indians out of Ft. Laramie during the hunting season, and then makes his way to New York City where his theater company recreates his battles on stage for the goddamn yankees.

Killing two indians with one bullet, scalping indians, convalescing at mother’s house after being wounded by indians, trapping beaver and otters, and killing indians.

FYI: Wild Bill and Buffalo Bill are two different men both tasked with killing indians.

Here’s a list of Frontier Men:

Wild Bill, Buffalo Bill, Kit Carson, Capt. Payne, “White Beaver,” Capt. Jack, Texas Jack, California Joe…

I’ll meet you on the Western Plains, Frontier Land, where we can ride the runaway mine train, eat churros, buy plastic trinkets, spend our fake money, kill the indians, and worship these Western Heroes. Face mask and mark of the beast required.

Next stop, TomorrowLand.
