In the last three
decades of the nineteenth century, an American buffalo herd once
numbering 30 million animals was reduced to twelve. In an era that
treated the West as nothing more than a treasure chest of resources to
be dug up and shot down, the buffalo was a commodity, hounded by hide
hunters seeking to make their fortunes. Supporting them was the US Army,
which considered the eradication of the buffalo essential to victory in
its ongoing war on Native Americans.
Into this maelstrom rode young George Bird Grinnell. A scientist and a journalist, a hunter and a conservationist, Grinnell would lead the battle to save the buffalo and preserve an American icon from extinction.
From the #1 international bestselling author of the REVENANT – the book that inspired the award-winning movie – comes the fascinating story of America’s first battle over the environment.
