Written in a matter-of-fact, often humorous style, 'The Champion Buffalo Hunter' is the engaging memoir of one of the most famous frontiersmen of the early West, 'Yellowstone Vic' Smith. Recently discovered in Harvard's Houghton Library by editor Jeanette Prodgers, this remarkable account (told in the third person) is comparable to Andrew Garcia's 'Tough Trip through Paradise,' but notes Prodgers, 'without the melodrama.'
