Born in Texas in the 1830's, Pecos Bill fell out of his family’s covered wagon near the Pecos River and was raised by coyotes, but he later found his brother who informed him he was not a coyote. He grew up to be an American cowboy during American westward expansion into the Southwest of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. He had a horse named Widow Maker who only Pecos Bill could survive riding and love interest named Slue Foot Sue. He was legendary for feats such as using a rattlesnake for a lasso, riding a mountain lion, and riding a tornado whirlwind like a bronco.
