Well remembered as a star of Western films in the 1920s and 1930s, Tim McCoy was also a working cowboy and rancher, a U.S. Cavalry officer and adjutant general of Wyoming, a performer in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, and head of a traveling Wild West show. Because of his adoptive ties to the Arapaho Indians and his intimate knowledge of their ways, he was sought out in 1922 as a technical adviser for the epic film The Covered Wagon. Soon he was in front of the camera as MGM's answer to Tom Mix and Hoot Gibson. His wide-ranging autobiography reveals a gentleman and a gift for telling stories and for making friends with the famous and the obscure. In a new preface, Ronald McCoy provides a moving account of his father's last years, when they collaborated in the writing of Tim McCoy Remembers the West.
