Indian Prairie Library staff review this nonfiction story of an almost forgotten American icon.

American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon
by Steven Rinella
Reviewed by Indian Prairie Library Staff

When adventure writer Steven Rinella wins a lottery to hunt and kill one buffalo in the wilds of Alaska, the story begins.

Rinella has long had a fascination with the American Buffalo. As the story of his hunt proceeds, he stops along to the way to inform us on the natural history of the buffalo, its meaning in Native and European American culture and its current existence. The adventure aspect of Rinella’s story is amazing. What some people will go through and call it fun! The history of the buffalo and the parallel history of America were fascinating. This is for anyone who likes adventure or natural history written for the interested lay person.
