Reviews

I was completely hooked. A superb book. Rosen writes beautifully. I wish it could be read by everyone." -- Jeffrey Masson
This is a book so riveting in its details that only after you've put it down do you begin to grasp the extent of Richard Rosen's accomplishment. From the story of one stray baby bison named Charlie Buffalo and the family that took him in, Rosen has drawn a sweeping history of the American frontier-of the people who tried to destroy it and the ones determined to save it. I can't remember when I've been instructed so gracefully, or entertained to such deep purpose." -- Jane Kramer
