A Comanche boy sits beside his grandmother on a hilltop in Oklahoma. As the old woman gazes across the valley below, she remembers the lost world of her youth and the greatest gift of the Great Spirit--the buffalo. Like other children of his generation, the Comanche boy on the hilltop has never set eyes on a buffalo. The great herds that once stretched to the far corners of the sky have vanished from the plains. After years of slaughter, the buffalo live only in the memory of the tribe's elders. But on this October morning in 1907, the boy will see with his eyes what he had previously seen only in his imagination. This special book commemorates the dream of saving a significant part of North America's heritage and native peoples' culture. From the archives of the Wildlife Conservation Society, Neil Waldman has created a work that is both poignant and inspiring.
