Preface


Introduction

Let's Hear It for the Buffalo!

A magnificent beast is the buffalo -- strong, speedy, and nimble. And of all the land animals in North America, it is, by far, the biggest.

Millions upon millions of buffaloes once roamed this continent. At times, they moved in masses so huge they shook the plains.

The native people who shared these plains depended on the buffalo for food, shelter, clothing, and more. Later, pioneers from Europe also hunted the buffalo for meat and other goods.

But overhunting quickly drove this incredible animal to near extinction. By 1890, it had almost disappeared.

For more than 100 years, North Americans have worked to help the buffalo survive. To make sure it lives on as a free and wild creature, there's still more work ahead.

So the story of the North American buffalo is a story of the past, the present, and the future. It's a story about the importance of sharing our world with wildlife. It's a story to celebrate another sunrise for the buffalo.
