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. In The Destruction of the Bison, Isenberg argues that ecological and social changes caused the near-extinction of the bison. Problems caused by drought and the introduction of new, domesticated livestock were compounded by new, more aggressive kinds of biso
n hunting by mounted Indian nomads and commercial Euroamerican hidehunters.
