When buffalo ran by George Bird Grinnell( )

17 editions published between 1920 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the white men came, there was a natural beauty in the land and the lives of the Plains Indians that will never be again. These people lived together, hunted the buffalo and the deer, fought their enemies, and developed a unique wisdom-- almost a philosophy-- for their own simple existence. As it was incorporated into the daily lives of these people, this tribal wisdom became tribal tradition. Indian children early learned the ways of their tribe. The Indian boy Wikis, whose story Grinnell tells, had no father to teach him, but his uncle helped to instruct him in the ways of hunting and war. The answers to some questions, such as, Would he fight with courage in battle? Wikis had to discover for himself. Grinnell's narrative recounts true incidents and experiences in the boy's life, his relationship to his family and his tribe, and his growth into a warrior and a man. First published in 1920 and long out of print, When Buffalo Ran was described by J. Frank Dobie as "noble and beautifully simple" -- Book jacket
