Raised by coyotes, Pecos Bill grew up to be the greatest cowboy in Texas or anywhere else. Besides inventing lassoing, cattle roping, and rodeos, he could tame rattlesnakes, wrestle dangerous critters, and even make the terrible Hell's Gulch Gang turn respectable! But his two greatest feats were winning the hearts of Lightning and of Slewfoot Sue - the wildest horse and the wildest woman in the West!
