Annotation The near extinction of the North American buffalo, which in 1850 covered the mid-western plains by countless millions but which had been hunted to near oblivion within thirty-five years, is one of the most exciting yet tragic stories of American history. From the 18th century French fur traders, through the American industrial revolution with its demand for leather, and ending with the final sad hunts of the mid-1880s, Robinson describes all aspects of the hunt and the hunters, including the Indians for whom the destruction of their subsistence resulted in their own destruction. Here are the hunters such as Custer, Cody and the Mooars, and the rough and tumble towns that hides built: Adobe Walls, Buffalo Gap, Dodge City, and Fort Griffin.
