A much-needed look at the exceptionally fraught relationship between bison and people...engaging and comprehensive.

A fascinating perspective...Re-Bisoning the West demonstrates the complex relationships the species maintains with the earth and humanity itself.

Award-winning journalist Kurt Repanshek traces the history of bison from the species' near extinction to present-day efforts to bring bison 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.
