Reviews

'The Destruction of the Bison is one of those very rare books that manage to be the definite work on a subject and simultaneously profoundly change how we understand that subject. No one can write about the destruction of America's national mammal - and the peoples who exploited and cared for it - without engaging with Andrew Isenberg's bold masterwork.' Pekka Hamalainen, University of Oxford 'In the nineteenth century, in the short span of a few decades, the great bison herds that defined the Plains for thousands of years almost disappeared. No book illuminates the causes and consequences of that fateful development so eloquently or concisely as Drew Isenberg's essential, classic study, The Destruction of the Bison.' Louis S.
