gorgeous picture of an American iconNov. 29 2010
- Published on Amazon.com
This short book from a veteran and honored Western writer gives us a gorgeous portrayal of an American icon, the buffalo. It traces the magnificent beast's history from Ice Age Europe, through centuries as a revered god and primary source of food for the Indians of the Great Plains, through the its near destruction by white hunters, to its recovery in American and Canada today. A tribute abundant in information and throbbing with feeling.
