When buffalo ran by George Bird Grinnell( Book )

31 editions published between 1920 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the white men came, there was a natural beauty in the land and the lives of the Plains Indians that will never be again. These people lived together, hunted the buffalo and the deer, fought their enemies, and developed a unique wisdom-- almost a philosophy-- for their own simple existence. As it was incorporated into the daily lives of these people, this tribal wisdom became tribal tradition. Indian children early learned the ways of their tribe. The Indian boy Wikis, whose story Grinnell tells, had no father to teach him, but his uncle helped to instruct him in the ways of hunting and war. The answers to some questions, such as, Would he fight with courage in battle? Wikis had to discover for himself. Grinnell's narrative recounts true incidents and experiences in the boy's life, his relationship to his family and his tribe, and his growth into a warrior and a man. First published in 1920 and long out of print, When Buffalo Ran was described by J. Frank Dobie as "noble and beautifully simple" -- Book jacket

Spare the birds! : George Bird Grinnell and the first Audubon Society by Carolyn Merchant( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An engaging history of the founding of one of the world's most popular environmental organizations, the Audubon Society. In 1887, a year after founding the Audubon Society, explorer and conservationist George Bird Grinnell launched Audubon Magazine. The magazine constituted one of the first efforts to preserve bird species decimated by the women's hat trade, hunting, and loss of habitat. Within two years, however, for practical reasons, Grinnell dissolved both the magazine and the society. Remarkably, Grinnell's mission was soon revived by women and men who believed in it, and the work continues today. In this, the only comprehensive history of the first Audubon Society (1886-1889), Carolyn Merchant presents the exceptional story of George Bird Grinnell and his writings and legacy
