Long Description:
The final tour of 1906 began in France on March 4, and then quickly moved on to Italy for two months.

Buffalo Bill’s Wild West was enormously successful in Europe making Buffalo Bill an international celebrity and an American icon. It was a genuine American cultural export; Mark Twain commented, “…It is often said on the other side of the water that none of the exhibitions which we send to England are purely and distinctly American. If you will take the Wild West show over there you can remove that reproach.” The Wild West brought an exotic foreign world to life for its European audiences, allowing a last glimpse at the fading American frontier.
