Launched in September 2016 in conjunction with the American Bison Society meeting in Banff and the Eleanor Luxton Historical Foundation, The Last of the Buffalo Return to the Wild is a commemoration of Banff National Park’s role in early successful efforts to preserve the last of the buffalo as a species and a celebration of today’s efforts to restore bison as an ecologically functioning and culturally important species on its native range both here and elsewhere in North America.
This beautifully presented book with a gold foil inlayed hardcover is filled with interesting essays by bison experts. Included in a clear pocket inside the backcover, is an exact reproduction of a 1909 booklet created by Norman Luxton that tells the story of the Pablo-Allard buffalo roundup through his own lively writing and magnificent panoramic images.
The book is available through our own website and select local retailers only. For more information, go to: http://summerthought.com/books/last-buffalo-return-wild
