"When Buffalo Ran tells the story of a young mid-nineteenth-century Plains Indian named Wikis. As Wikis grows, he encounters many wild buffalo and enemy tribes. Along the way, he is guided by his uncle, a mentor and tutor who teaches him all the necessary skills to become an Indian brave. After dedicating a lifetime to researching Native Americans, Grinnell wrote this compelling book that artistically captures the voice of a young Plains Indian and his life on the plains. Readers will sympathize with Wikis throughout his adventures, laughing, crying, and learning new things with him as he grows from a young boy to a skilled and fearsome warrior for his people." --
