Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Freedman punctuates his discussion of the importance of buffalo to the Great Plains Indians with artwork from museums around the country. Ages 8-12. (Jan.)
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up Freedman's book has two levels of appeal: that of the wonderfully conceived and vividly executed paintings (full-color reproductions of stunning paintings by such they-were-there artists as George Catlin, Karl Bodmer, Albert Bierstadt, uncluttered by inclusion of photographic every-detail), and that of an informative, accessible text. The title may by itself mislead some, as Freedman presents not a story or description of one hunt but descriptions of the many ways that buffalo hunts were madeby Indians, and later by the whites whose ferocious, firearm slaughter of the ``shaggies''as they were calledbrought the species to near extinction. This is superior to two recent picture books on the general subject of buffalo: Dorothy Hinshaw Patent's Buffalo: the American Rison Today (Clarion, 1986) and Cary B. Ziter 's The Moon of Falling Leaves (Watts, 1988). A thundering success. George Gleason, Department of English, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield
