Award-winning author and journalist Susan Hazen-Hammond was invited to document the arrival of the buffalo at Nambe Pueblo. Through the eyes and experiences of Thunder Bear Yates, an eight-year-old boy, she shows the importance of the buffalo to Pueblo history, culture, and spirituality- and how this successful fight helped rekindle the communitys interest in its own past.Gorgeous full-color photographs of the majestic buffalo and the distinctive Southwestern landscape accompany this extraordinary story of grassroots activism, cultural identity, and the special bonds that can exist between animals and people. As Thunder Bears father says, The Indian nation and the buffalo nation have been linked since time began. This book is a celebration of that shared history.
