In his nationally acclaimed BUFFALO BILL EXPERIENCE living history presentations, Colorado-based author of “Re-enacting!” and Buffalo Bill re-enactor “Gunny” Jeff Norman guides audiences down the untamed frontier trail that was “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s life, in a costumed one-man play that’s as entertaining as it is informative!  “EDU-tainment” that’s chock full of all the wagon train driving, Army scouting, Indian fighting, and Pony Express riding adventures that made Buffalo Bill an American icon, gathering legendary friends like Wild Bill Hickok, Kit Carson, Annie Oakley, General George Armstrong Custer, and Sitting Bull along the way. In the spirit of Hal Holbrook’s “Mark Twain”, Jeff colorfully portrays Buffalo Bill’s amazing “rags to riches to rags” life, blending equal parts humor, drama, and little-known historical anecdotes.
