STORY OF THE WILDWEST (1888) sets the realistic tone that is followed by nearly all subsequent biographers, and thus should be seen as "the pivotal one between the two centuries, mixing the old with the new." Cody is "one of the first to take a chisel to the romantic epic hero pedestal." (SMITH2:78n)
