Book Description Alfred a Knopf Inc, New York, 1960. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Very Good. Later Printing. Hardcover, cloth in non price-clipped dust-jacket. 324pp., plus 12pp. Index. Bibliography. Illustrated with 17 drawings by Nick Eggenhofer and photographs. A well written and researched narrative of one of the more shameful episodes of American expansion, the slaughtering of nearly seventy million buffalo for profit. Though Gard devotes an entire chapter to protests against this harvesting of hides [the meat was most often left to rot], he also points out that in addition to the hide hunters who were the primary perpetrators of the buffalo's demise, their actions helped subdue the plains Indians and clear the Western ranges for raising cattle and sheep--additional economic benefits that all but insured the protests would fall on deaf ears. An early printing. No previous ownership marks. A clean, square copy in a slightly age soiled dust-jacket. Very good in a near very good dust-jacket. Seller Inventory # 008649

Book Description Alfred A Knopf., New York., 1960. Hard cover. Eggenhofer, Nick (Illustrated by). (illustrator). Copyright 1959.. 324 p. 22 cm. 17 B&W half-tone photos; plus black Pen&Ink drawings. Bibliography. Index. American Studies / Conservation challenge. In 1871, thousands of hide hunters swarmed into the western Great Plains. Previously, herds of 60-75 million Buffalo had been diminished to about 40 million. Over the next 12 years, hunters had left only about 1000, taking the hides and leaving most of the meat to rot. This factual account is based on the accounts by hunters, by "sportsmen", and records of protests before Congress. There were battles between Native Nations peoples and the hunters, the former losing their sustenance and traditions. Very good in good dust jacket. Jacket has spine darkening, back jacket soiling; spine end edge wear. Book is clean, solid. Seller Inventory # Alibris.US1240008435
