    Talk of railroad extension finally took a practical form. He decided he did not want to kill Coyote. Now that the buffalo is on the verge of a dramatic ecological recovery across the West, Americans are faced with the challenge of how, and if, we can dare to share our land with a beast that is the embodiment of the American wilderness. Many got a start by collecting buffalo bones. So Rinella set off into the wilderness to fulfill his lifelong ambition.

    But with the completion of the Union Pacific railroad, and later the Santa Fe line, new industry sprang up. As he pursues the buffalo herd, Rinella also explores the long relationship between humans and an animal that they drove to the edge of extinction. If you are looking for a blissful weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, then look no further. He was now twenty. This quote isn't in his Bloomberg story.

    Why does Jane Thompson leave her house and father to live a life with Ozawamukwah in the Ojibwa Indian tribe? After that the whole herd would stand still and all be shot down. Then the same band will come again—and so the summers come and go with few days in which some outfit is not thus encamped at the frontier boom-town. But he was up and into the second tree before Buffalo Bull could reach him. One young Ojibwa man, Ozawa, saves Polly and Jane from wolves, and becomes a friend. On presenting to the astonished Chief his own portrait, the boy was able to exact the promise from him that he would now go back to his leaderless little army and assume command.
