American Buffalo

American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon by Steven Rinella

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is what non-fiction should be: Interesting, captivating, a mix of old and new, near and far, and written by someone who's passionate about the subject. American Buffalo hits all of those. The story of the buffalo in North America, framed by the author's experience hunting buffalo in Alaska. Fascinating.

Not one I would have thought to pick up off the shelf. I find your reading choices fascinating- someone reads all those books that I barely glance at the cover of~ good for you! It seems that more often than not your reading material is interesting, even if you can't tell from the cover. (I know, bad librarian, judging the book by it's cover!)
