Summary: Thirty million North American bison roamed the plains in 1800. A century later, only 1,000 bison remained, a precipitous decline that is explained for the first time by an environmental historian, Andrew Isenberg.

Problems caused by drought and the introduction of new, domesticated livestock were compounded by new, more aggressive kinds of biso ...show moren hunting by mounted Indian nomads and commercial Euroamerican hidehunters. ...show less

In the early twentieth century, nostalgia about the very cultural strife that first threatened the bison became, ironically, an importa ...show less
