A Thrilling Wilderness Adventure

Little Kettle sadly watched the last buffalo fall lifeless to the ground in what he had come to call “The Winter of the Red Snow.” Educated as a lawyer, he has been waging a legal war to protect the buffalo—their killing sanctioned by the Interagency Bison Management Plan in Yellowstone National Park—but he has been unable to stop the carnage. When his nephew Wyman is born, Little Kettle proclaims him the “Keeper of the Buffalo” and instills in him a deep love for the buffalo as he grows. But the boy struggles under the weight of his title. At twelve years old, Wyman sets out on a great adventure in the wilderness of Yellowstone to save the buffalo—a journey driven by his vivid and compelling dreams. With help from his friends Alex and Jacob, a peace pipe, an Indian maiden, and a mysterious shape shifter, Wyman is determined to discover the secret of his dreams and fulfill his role as the Keeper of the Buffalo.

    The last free-ranging wild herd of buffalo is located in Yello



    The last free-ranging wild herd of buffalo is located in Yellowstone Park, but it can hardly be described as "free." The buffalo are in constant danger of death because the cattle ranchers argue that they carry a strain of brucellosis that threatens to destroy their cattle. Because of this belief, any buffalo that leaves the confines of Yellowstone is shot. This is the story of Little Kettle and his nephew Wyman who make it their goal to protect the remaining buffalo.



    Little Kettle stands guard at the boundary of Yellowstone in hopes of stopping the death of any more buffalo. He believes that his nephew Wyman is destined to do the same, but Wyman is reluctant to join the fight. That is until he begins having strange dreams that involve the buffalo and especially a young buffalo that always remains out of sight in the strange dreams. Upon hearing of the dreams, Little Kettle insists they are "visions" not simple dreams, and he offers them as proof that indicate the path Wyman is bound to follow.



    When Wyman goes to stay with Little Kettle, he meets two other young people whose lives are connected to the Yellowstone herd. A girl named Alex also admits to having dreams and with her help Wyman begins to face up to the mysterious visions. By comparing dreams it is revealed that there is a white buffalo that only they have seen but many desire to capture or even kill. It becomes their goal to protect the special buffalo and join in Little Kettle's crusade.


    Author Ed Kienzle an outdoor enthusiast has crafted an adventurous novel about the preservation of an endangered species. THE LAST BUFFALO is filled with visions, Indian lore and spirits, cattle slayings, a pet bear, and more. Kienzle brings some of the excitement of the old west into a modern story of two young people trying to make a difference.
