From the Author:

The first book in the series, 'Billie the Buffalo' books stars Billie the Buffalo,  a real bison from the Flying Eagle Bison Ranch in Del Norte, Colorado. Billie really did go to town, was in parades in the towns of  Del Norte and Creede, Colorado, and a representative at the National Western Stock show in Denver, Colorado. Children visited her at the ranch when they came for tours and Billie allowed them to pet her gigantic head and feed her mineral cakes! The cover is a real photo of Val and Billie. A rare occurrence for a bison mother, Billie was abandoned at birth. She bonded to a human family while living among her herd. Billie was a great mom to several calves. Although she is no longer with us, Billie lives on in my adventure book series.Billie, and the eight year old she grew up with, were my inspirations for Billie the Buffalo's first children's book. Billie really did escape the ranch one day after the gate was opened and headed for the town of Del Norte, about one mile away. The real story is a neighbor used his truck to block the road and help Billie circle back to the ranch before she reached town but, knowing Billie, and with the help of local businesses and individuals, I took Billie on her first adventure!Billie books are intended for kids to place themselves into Billies fun adventures while learning about things she discovers. The feedback I've heard from kids and parents reading the hard copy is delightful; kids love hearing Billie read again and again. Teachers tell me they love using Billie in their classrooms because of the way the knowledge is delivered and absorbed by young students.  Even though I have many talented artist friends who offered to illustrate Billie, I opted for a photography medium to showcase the incredible Western part of the United States like wide open turquoise skies, mountains, plains, and prairies.As a child growing up on the east coast, it was hard to imagine the huge mammal who lives in America like elephants live in Africa and I was fascinated with photographs in my textbooks of the western part of my country. The first time I drove out west, I watched a violent thunderstorm throw lightening to the earth miles away on the open prairie while I remained underneath clear blue, skies barely getting relief from intense heat and was taken in by the west's beauty that evening! To me, photography is the best way to show the reader what the environment looks like where Billie the Buffalo lives and travels.  The photography in my first Billie book uses special effects to create a fresco-like appearance for its debut by photographer, Mark D. Niederquell, while subsequent books rely on the incredibly captured natural beauty of the landscapes themselves.  Billie is solo in her first adventure because she is being introduced however, the way she interacts with townsfolk gives a clue to subsequent adventures where she meets children and they go on adventures together. I wanted everyone who reads my Billie books to love Billie the Buffalo in the same way me and my children got the rare opportunity to do and think I've achieved my goal.

From the Back Cover:

Billie escapes from the Flying Eagle Bison Ranch and wanders through the town of Del Norte, CO. Along the way, she learns about the Western Town, how bees make honey, and much more.Follow Billie The Buffalo on her first adventure and learn science and history through this engaging children's story great for ages three to seven.Billie can be listened to (as read by the author) used as a read assist or, a self read depending on the child's reading level.Stunning photography showcases the American West and combine with a lively story, the first in a series by author Judith A. Stone.
