Michael Punke talked about his book, Last Stand: George Bird Grinnell, the Battle to Save the Buffalo, and the Birth of the New West. He described the life of George Bird Grinnell, a scientist, journalist and sportsman who launched a campaign to save the American Buffalo in the late nineteenth century. Grinnell was interested in protecting a herd that dwindled from 30 million to 12 animals in just thirty years, in part because the U.S. Army believed that the disappearance of the buffalo would lead to victory in their war on Native Americans. After his presentation the author responded to audience members' questions. close
