Abstract:

"In this illustrated companion volume to Pronghorn: Ecology and Management, Richard E. McCabe, Bart W. O'Gara and Henry M. Reeves explore the relationship between pronghorn and people in early America, from prehistoric evidence through the Battle of Little Bighorn in 1876. The only one of fourteen pronghorn-like genera to survive the great extinction brought on by human migration into North America, the pronghorn has a long and unique history of interaction with humans on the continent, a history that until now has largely remained unwritten." "With nearly 150 black-and-white photographs, 16 pages of color illustrations, plus original artwork by Daniel P. Metz, Prairie Ghost: Pronghorn and Human Interaction in Early America tells the story of these elusive big game mammals and humans in a fashion that will appeal to historians, biologists, sportsmen and the general reader alike."--Jacket.
