Overview

Bill was just four years old when he fell from the family wagon near the Pecos River on the western frontier. Accidentally left behind by his family, he was raised by coyotes, and he didn’t realize he was human until he was an adult. When he did, Pecos Bill returned to civilization and used the superhuman powers he’d developed during his peculiar upbringing to become the best cowboy in the West.
