Where the Buffalo Roam Issue Date: 07-30-2000

Cool Spots imageOnce considered "lords of the prairie," buffalo are one of this country's most noble, legendary animals. At American Buffalo: Spirit of a Nation, you'll learn about how these great mammals were almost wiped out by greedy hunters a century ago, and how folks today are trying to rebuild the bison herds. Roam across the Web to www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/american-buffalo-spirit-of-a-nation/introduction/2183 and get the lowdown on these beautiful animals. You'll revisit the glory days of the buffalo, and find out how they were tragically killed by the thousands. You'll also travel to Yellowstone National Park, one of the safe havens for wildlife, and now home to more than 2,000 free-roaming bison. The Spirit of a Nation journey will also take you to South Dakota's Black Hills, where you'll learn about the efforts of Native Americans to restore the bison to millions of acres of tribal lands. The spirit of the buffalo awaits you on the Web.
