About this Item

85 pages, photos, rear hinge cracked, owner name on first blank page, minor exterior wear. Reprinted from a series of articles appearing in the DuBois Courier-Express 1949. The author¿s 1st edition was printed in 1939 and only contained 40 pages. Apparently the author expanded his 1st ed. in a series of articles in 1949 cumulating in book form in 1950. The 1st edition is rare and this edition scarce. The author was a bone buyer and shipper in Dakota Territory, and tells of his experiences with hunters and Indians and gives accounts of the numbers of buffalo killed during the great extermination. One hunter reportedly killed 150 to 200 without moving, another killed 1,500 in 7 days, and one killed 120 in 40 minutes. Gives an analysis of the trade and the role of the railroads in the enterprise. The author also tells how the Indians were affected by the slaughter of the buffalo and the encroachment of settlers.
