Ed Farlow seems to have been present at every important historic event in the West. If he wasn t, he knew someone who was.
In this historic memoir Ed Farlow recalls a life like no other starting with his arrival as a teenager in Wyoming in the 1870s. It begins with Farlow and a friend hopping a freight train for Laramie, Wyoming, and continues until 1931 when he was adopted into the Arapaho Nation by the Indians who had become his friends.
His remarkable rapport with the Indians who were his neighbors on the Wind River Reservation led to his acting as a theatrical agent for the tribes for their appearances in exhibitions and early motion pictures. He traveled with them to far away places including Paris, London, and Hollywood.
He recounts versions of famous events the Custer Battle, a buffalo hunt with Indians, the Wilcox train robbery, the Battle of Crowheart Butte, a wolf roundup. And he recalls famous people Sacajawea, the Hole-in-the Wall gang, Colonel Tim McCoy, Joan Crawford, Chief Washakie, Cattle Kate, and more.
Wind River Adventures is the first publication of the memoirs of Edward J. Farlow. He wrote these accounts in the late 1930s and early 1940s when he was between seventy-five and eighty-five years old. He lived to be ninety and was active and vigorous until near the end of his life. And what a life it was! It has been said that Ed Farlow was there when the West was born.
