When the first settlers came, 75 million buffalo roamed the Great Plains, by 1900 there were almost none!
As the buffalo fell, nature lost its balance, tough green grass did not grow, larks lost their song and terrible storms began to blow. The prairie was in trouble and the buffalo was the key to it all.
Legendary naturalist, Jean Craighead George and celebrated artist Wendell Minor create a beautiful and inspiring story about the comeback of an endangered species and the hope that still grows for America’s wild places.
