A heart-breaking, beautifully written short novel about the decimation of the buffalo at the hands of colonizers in North America.

Through the eyes of a young white buffalo living her life close to the end of the time of the great herds, Spirit of the White Bison is a heart-breaking and beautifully written short novel about the decimation of the buffalo at the hands of a new kind of hunter: one who does not hunt for food, but only for the slaughter. “It was not a quiet, accidental extermination,” Culleton writes. “The horror was that the killings were deliberate, planned, military actions. Destroy the livelihood of the Indians and win a war.”
