Pecos Bill - Bill was born in 1830s Texas and as an infant, fell out of a covered wagon unnoticed by his family near the Pecos River, earning the nickname. He was raised by coyotes until found by his real brother who convinced him he was a man. He became a cowboy using Shake, the rattlesnake as a lasso, riding Widow-Maker, eating dynamite, and once lassoed a tornado. Bill proposed to Slue-Foot Sue by shooting all the stars from the sky but one which becomes the Lone Star.
