A BRIEF HISTORY OF

AMERICAN BISON

parallax

β€œAt once [the buffalo] is a symbol of the tenacity of wilderness and the destruction of wilderness; it's a symbol of Native American culture and the death of Native American culture; it's a symbol of the strength and vitality of America and the pettiness and greed of America; it represents a frontier both forgotten and remembered; it stands for freedom and captivity, extinction and salvation.”

Steven Rinella, American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon
