BUFFALO BILL

BUFFALO BILL’S
WILD WEST

The First Reality Show in Essex
A new book by David Dunford
The author of Full Circle

            Buffalo Bill was one of the most famous men in the world and for five days in the early 1900s he could be found walking the streets of Essex. He wasn’t alone.  He’d brought with him the most extraordinary show ever seen.  Hundreds of people and animals performed in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West.
This was no circus — the cowboys were real cowboys; the Indians real Indians and the cavalry had been real soldiers.
They portrayed real events in American history in which many of them had actually taken part.
It was the world’s first reality show and Buffalo Bill brought it to the county a hundred years before ‘The Only Way is Essex’ turned the idea into a global phenomenon.  This book tells the story of Buffalo Bill, the Wild West and what happened when they visited Southend, Colchester,
Chelmsford, Ilford and Leyton.
