by Colonel Henry Inman with "Buffalo Bill" Cody.
America nearly lost its buffalo (or bison, to be more accurate), but in an early
conservation effort a small herd was retained. This has now grown into a sizable
population, which recall to us the vast herds that once roamed and even blackened the
plains. This story, however, is told by one who at one point in his career was actively
engaged in slaughtering the animals. They were a nuisance that got in the way of the new
trains, and, besides, eliminating buffaloes might help in subduing Indians. Life habits of
the animal are given as well, and what better way to learn of the place in our history of
the buffalo than by reading an account by one of the principals in their history.
