--CHRIS LA TRAY, Fact & Fiction Bookstore

Kurt Repanshek traces the history of bison from their near extinction to present-day efforts to bring them back to the landscape--and the biological, political, and cultural hurdles confronting these efforts. Repanshek explores Native Americans' relationships with bison and presents a forward-thinking approach to returning bison to the West and improving the health of ecosystems.
