A Durn-Tootin' Cowboy Who Shaped the Wild West!
"If it weren't for Bill, there wouldn't have been a Wild West. It just would have been plain old mundane." And so begins the colorful retelling of the legend of Pecos Bill - fearless buckaroo raised by coyotes. The story told by Robin Williams with music by Ry Cooder evokes a Texas of crusty cowboys and campfire tales.
