Publisher's Summary

Take a rollicking ride through the Wild, Wild West with the original cowboy, Pecos Bill. Raised by coyotes to brave the great frontier, Pecos rides his wild mustang Widow-Maker and invents the first rough-and-tumble cattle drive. Then he mounts a runaway cyclone like a buckin' bronco to create the Great Salt Lake.
Robin Williams narrates this tale, which is rich in language, imagery, and sheer nonsensical fun, Pecos Bill is a fast and furious fantasy your family is sure to enjoy. The original score by Ry Cooder adds to the fun.

Robin Williams is Fantastic

I loved these stories about Pecos Bill growing up and I think any kid would today. Robin Williams really made the story come alive. I didn't even know this was Williams until after I bought it. He does such a good western accent that I would have never caught on, had I not read it. I think Robin might have added some of his own impromptu to the story, not sure. At one point a cowboy comes upon Pecos running around naked with the coyotes and the cowboy says something like, "or are you just happy to see me?" I am betting that was not in the story.

This is a must, a great American Tall Tell, acted by one of the best.

Robin Williams does a fantastic job with the voices. Very Dynamic! His impression of the cougar is hilarious and cracks me up every time!
