The North American Bison

Gr. 4-6. A nice antidote to the books on endangered species, the Returning Wildlife series focuses on animals that have made a successful comeback from the brink of extinction. This volume considers North American bison, which roamed the Great Plains in huge herds until nineteenth-century settlers, hunters, soldiers, and "sportsmen" slaughtered them. The clearly written text discusses the bison's characteristics and habits, its importance to Native Americans, its near extinction, and the century-long story of its recovery as a species. The colorful illustrations, which appear on nearly every spread, include maps, period prints and photos, and many contemporary photos of bison. A glossary and lists of books, periodicals, organizations, and Web sites are appended. A good, concise presentation. Carolyn Phelan
