I don't usually post the books I read with my six year old daughter but then they don't usually move her to tears When we reached the part that detailed how the US government finally decimated the great herds of buffalo NOT for meat hides or even a depraved sense of sport but as a tactic to drive the Native American Indians from their lands onto the reservation she was crying asking Why don't people THINK about other people before they do things She was distraught when she learned how the loss of the bison helped change the ecosystem of the plains leading up to the dustbowl of the 30's But then when she read about Teddy Roosevelt and WT Hornaday discovering the last stand of 300 animals in a secluded meadow in Montana a place that had been hidden away from the world she was overjoyed and grabbed onto a new pair of heroes as she learned about their efforts to save and rebuild the herds Jean Craighead George truly is a national treasure to be cherished right alongside the bison and other wildlife she has championed for so long Beautifully illustrated with paintings by Wendell Minor this is a children's book that should find its way into any home with youngstersand wouldn't be an unwelcome addition to those without any as well
