Cabinet photograph titled “John Nelson, and Family, Scout, Interpreter and Guide. Buffalo Bill’s Wild West.” Photographer is ID’d on mount recto and verso as Elliott & Fry, London. Nelson had a long and fabled career on the Plains. His adopted father was the Chief Spotted Tail and his brother-in-law was Red Cloud—Chief of the Sioux Nation. As a young Sioux brave, Nelson participated in Indian raids and skirmishes. Later, he guided Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley in 1847, worked as a military scout with William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill), fought in the Indian Wars, and served as a lawman in North Dakota. In his many escapades he often narrowly escaped death from bullets, arrows, and knives. Nelson’s story is a fascinating view of the early American west in all its glory.
