The series republishes historical American works that are virtually unknown or rare in the original. According to the Publisher's Preface to this edition, the eradication of the buffalo is an important fact in American history, and the book republished here "is the best story of this event we have found." Cook was a buffalo hunter, and wrote this book in the late 1870s or early 1880s; it was published in 1907 in Topeka, Kansas. It is interesting from today's perspective, as it was an early look at the effect of occupation and development of the continent by those of European origin. After Cook retired from his hunting days, he went to Topeka where he was involved in the temperance movement and other activities. The book includes a frontispiece of Cook, with a tissue protector; an "Address To the Hunters of the Ninety Days' Scout" by "Vox Buffalorem," first published in 1877; the historical introduction and the author's original dedication and preface; footnotes, and index. Maroon cloth hard cover with a gilt decoration on the front cover and gilt titles on the spine; top edge gilt; fine. Bookseller Inventory # LC36
