"Widow Maker" ("Widdamaker")
Horses of the sea, or sea horses.
Diablo was Cisco's horses name, Loco was Pancho's horses name
An ostler is the name of a person who tends horses at an inn.
He was living with coyotes until he met another human, Chuckwagon Chuck. Since he was standing by the Pecos River, Chuckwagon Chuck named him Pecos Bill.
Well, some people never read about Pecos Bill, so if this is a test I'm not talking.
Charles E. Boles
There are a couple of possibilities. If you mean "legendary" literally, as in "he was a legend and not a real person", then it's probably Pecos Bill. If you mean "a real person about whom legends formed", it's probably Buffalo Bill. It's worth noting that in neither of these cases is "Bill" actually their last name. Buffalo Bill's last name was Cody; I don't think Pecos Bill had a last name given. The "first" name in both cases is a nickname: "Buffalo" Bill Cody and "Pecos" Bill Nolastname.
Pecos means crooked in camanche so they named it pecos river for crooked river........
did buffalo bill have a horse named isham and if so why?
The Pecos River is originally called the Río Pecos. On early maps it was sometimes called the Río Puerco (Dirty/Filthy).
His wife's name is PECOS
According to the legend, Pecos Bill was born in Texas in the 1830s. Pecos Bill was traveling in a covered wagon as an infant when he fell out unnoticed by the rest of his family near the Pecos River. He was taken in by a pack of coyotes who were said to have raised him.Years later he was found by his real brother, who managed to convince him he was not a coyote.He grew up to become a cowboy. Pecos used a rattlesnake named Shake as a lasso and another snake as a little whip. His horse Widow-Maker was so named because no other man except Pecos Bill could ride him and live. Widow-Maker was also called Lightning. Dynamite was said to be his favorite food. It is also said Pecos sometimes rode a mountain lion instead of a horse. On one of his adventures, Pecos Bill managed to lasso a tornado.Pecos Bill had a love interest named Slue-Foot Sue, who rode a giant catfish down the Rio Grande. Just like Shake, both Widow-Maker and Slue-Foot Sue are equally as idealized as Pecos Bill.After a courtship with Slue-Foot Sue in which, among other things, Pecos Bill shoots all the stars from the sky except for one which becomes the Lone Star, Pecos proposes to Sue. She insists on riding Widow-Maker before, during or after the wedding (depending on variations in the story). Widow-Maker, jealous of no longer having Bill's undivided attention, bounces Sue off; she lands on her bustle and begins bouncing higher and higher. Pecos attempts, but fails to lasso her, because Widow-Maker didn't want her on his back again, and she eventually hits her head on the moon. After she has been bouncing for days, Pecos Bill realizes that she would eventually starve to death, so he lassos her with Shake the rattlesnake and brings her back down. Widow-Maker, realizing that what he did to her was wrong, apologizes. Then no one knows what happened to Pecos Bill or where he was. In Bowman's version of the story, Sue eventually recovers from the bouncing, but is so traumatized by the experience she never talks to Pecos Bill again. Though it is said that Bill was married many times, he never liked the others as much as Sue, and the other relationships didn't work out. In some versions, Sue couldn't stop bouncing, and Bill couldn't stop her bouncing either, so Bill had to shoot her to put her out of her misery. Although he married many times after that, he never loved a girl as much as Sue.It was also said that once he wrestled the Bear Lake Monster which one went on for several days until Bill finally was victorious."Pecos Bill had the strangest and most exciting experience any boy ever had. He became a member of a pack of wild Coyotes, and until he was a grown man, believed that his name was Cropear, and that he was a full-blooded Coyote. Later he discovered that he was a human being and very shortly thereafter became the greatest cowboy of all time. This is how it all came about."A Newbery Honor book in 1938, James Bowman's PECOS BILL is the perfect introduction to a great American comic hero and to the delights of the American tall tale. Jolted off the back of his westward-bound pioneer family's covered wagon, four-year-old Bill is left in the dust by his eighteen wawling and brawling siblings and never-suspecting mom and dad. Raised by coyotes as one of their own, Bill retains a natural innocence while developing a host of supernatural powers. When he finds out that he is a man, not a coyote, and returns to confront the often inhuman human world, those powers will come in handy. Bill never uses them maliciously, always for good, or simply to amaze and amuse.James Bowman was a fine folklorist and an outstanding storyteller and he relates Pecos Bill's wild deeds in a plainspoken voice that highlights their wonderful swagger and charm. With lively color and black-and-white illustrations by Laura Bannon, Bowman's PECOS BILL remakes bedrock American myth into a novel full of high adventure, outrageous fantasy, laughter, and sheer fun.by joemmuel
