In spite of spending many hours writing this book, I continue to think of things that I wish I had included. Dad wrote this while living with us in Louisiana. I well remember reading it and discussing it with him after reading it the first time. At his request I made copies and sent them to my sisters and I think to my cousin Jessie. I remember going to a circus more than once while growing up but none of them included Buffalo Bills or Pawnee Bill’s show. I went to a few that were held in a “bigtop” but by the time I was grown, circuses were held in ‘an arena or coliseum.
