About this title


On his first trip out West, Zane Grey became friends with Buffalo Jones, the “last of the plainsmen” as he called him. Jones had been witness to the great herds of buffalo that had once ranged on the Great Plains, and he had been a participant in the hunts that led to their destruction. In early 1923, Grey decided that he would write the epic story of the thundering herds of buffalo, the great hunt that decimated them, and the battle between the Plains Indians and the buffalo hunters.

When he completed his manuscript he sent it to the editors of Ladies’ Home Journal, who had agreed to buy it. Grey was asked to make extensive changes in the structure and tone of the story, and once these changes were made, the story was as decimated as the great buffalo herds. Fortunately, the original manuscript survived and is presented here in Buffalo Stampede as Grey intended it to be.

At last, Zane Grey’s magnificent panorama of the war for and against the buffalo has been restored, with its violent and furious action and tone of elegiac sadness for the passing of those mighty, noble herds.
