The Buffalo Hunter
When Buffalo Bill explained to Spotted Tail about the trip, he apparently said, "Great white man wants a big hunt with the Indians." Buffalo Bill also arranged for the Indians to put on a show for the Duke. The Grand Duke, who was 19, had a great time, especially when he went on a mad ride in a stagecoach behind six wild horses with Buffalo Bill holding the reins. All in all, they went on the most famous buffalo hunt ever held.
