Description Pecos Bill was a super cowboy who embodied the wildness of America's frontier. According to legend, he was raised by coyotes and was so tough he could ride a mountain lion and use a rattlesnake as a whip. The original saga was written by Edward O'Reilly, but many others expanded upon the yarns in other books, articles, poems, recordings, and plays.
