5.0 out of 5 stars The Buffalo Man May 23 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is not a large book. It is a distillation of character and plot till both are the purest essence of a fine story. I found the characters to be fully "fleshed out"(as is usual for De Lint). De Lint can do in a few pages what other authors must take chapters to do. Love the Crow Girls. I greatly enjoyed this book and reccomend it to anyone who like their fantasy with great characters and wonderful storyline.

4.0 out of 5 stars My faith in people is restored April 8 2000
By Rhiannon Lone Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
In The Buffalo Man, Charles de Lint returns to Newford and the crow girls and once again renews our faith in the world. He helps us to see that we can change ourselves and that we can leave the world a better place. Charles de Lint's imagery is spectacular as usual. The book was overall a wonderful read, although it did seem to wrap up too quickly. I highly recommend this book to fans of de Lint.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing May 13 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Although this book is advertised as a "paperback," the word "pamphlet" would be better. It looks like someone's self-published book of poetry -- it's barely 20 pages long and can be read in about 15 minutes. It's not a bad story line, but, unless you are very familiar with some of de Lint's earlier works, this is going to be confusing. The whole story would fit a lot better into an anthology of fiction. The illustrations are somewhat scary and didn't really fit the story that well. I frankly felt that this "book" did not live up to de Lint's normal standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Chapbook July 25 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a fabulous chapbook story by one of the best writers alive today. It is not a "pamphlet" as Augusta, Georgia thinks. It is a chapbook which many true collectors love and of course collect. It is 32 pages and now that it is out of print highly sought after. It is as engrossing as all his works and will remain on my bookshelf as long as I live.
3.0 out of 5 stars Buffalo Man -- a small taste of De Lint June 5 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Charles De Lint is my favorite author so I try to read all of his books that I can find. I ordered this one and was disappointed in how short it was. The story was only 32 pages which is really just a small taste of the banquet I'm accustomed to getting in a De Lint book. The Buffalo Man is an engaging little story that brings us back to some characters we've met in other De Lint fantasy. The Crow Girls are among these characters and act in their typical mischievous and mystifying way. I always welcome the opportunity to visit with De Lint's characters but was disappointed that this visit was so brief.
