Buffalo Bill Center for the West

Edward S. Curtis

A new history of the Indian Wars of the late 19th century hit bookstores on Tuesday. The author set out to debunk myths about the settling of the American West. Historian and author of The Earth Is Weeping: The Epic Story of the Indian Wars for the American West, Peter Cozzens, said he wrote the book because he saw the need for an objective account of the Indian Wars.

Prince Albert II of Monaco will be visiting Cody, Wyoming this week.

During his visit, the prince will be presenting the inaugural Camp Monaco prize to Dr. Arthur Middleton and Joe Riis to fund their study of the area’s elk migration. The grant is provided by the University of Wyoming’s Biodiversity Institute, the Prince Albert Foundation’s United States branch, and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.
