    Summary: 
    Millions of majestic bison once roamed territory stretching from Alaska to Mexico. This awe-inspiring species, designated the National Mammal of the United States in 2016, has come close to extinction-- and great effort is needed to preserve it for future generation. Award-winning journalist Kurt Repanshek traces the history of bison from their Ice Age ancestors to present-day strategies to bring them back to the landscape-- and the biological, political, and cultural hurdles confronting this work. Repanshek explores Native Americans' relationship with bison and presentsa forward-thinking approach to returning this keystone species to the West and improving the health of ecosystems.
