Steven Rinella talked about his book American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon (Spiegel and Grau; December 2, 2008). In his book Steven Rinella narrates his story of hunting and eating a bison as he recounts the history of the American buffalo from its centrality to the lives of Native Americans to the sizable reduction of its population from approximately 40 million to a few hundred by the late 19th century. Topics included controversies about the management of buffalo herds and its usage as a symbol of America. Mr. Riinella read passages from his book and he showed slides throughout his presentation. The audience had no questions. close
