This is an inspiring and educational book. I am grateful to R.D. Rosen for sharing his experiences with this majestic animal. Reading the book inspired me to support the Buffalo Field Campaign which advocates for the 4000 remaining wild bison in the U.S. As stewards of this country need to protect and cherish this symbol of the American West.
