Summary
"A Chorus of Buffalo is Ruth Rudner's lyrical consideration of the American bison's struggle to exist amid the harsh realities of human society. Bringing readers to the meadows, foothills, and wooded regions of Yellowstone National Park, Rudner describes the lives of these fragile beasts with wide-ranging depth and meticulous detail. Rudner considers buffalo from multiple vantages - as a wild animal on the Great Plains and on Indian Reservations, as the revered provider of the necessities of life for Indian people, as a circus performer, as a symbol of the earth's struggle for integrity. She charts the buffalo's affliction with brucellosis, a disease that puts them in the crosshairs of wildlife politics in the American West, a milieu in which ranchers are pitted against environmentalists, bureaucrats against Native Americans, and government agencies against each other."--BOOK JACKET
