Catalogue Note

Scarce, less than 50 copies printed. "In the following pages I have tried to describe a phase of life that I saw and lived during the latter part of the great round-up of wild buffalo, the last in the United States," Ellsworth writes. "With the history of the buffalo lies woven the romance of the Indian.  The two were inseparable.  It is almost impossible for a civilized being to realize the value of the buffalo to the plains Indian" (Foreword).  Lincoln Ellsworth was a polar explorer from the United States and a major benefactor of the American Museum of Natural History.
