Buffalo: The American Bison Today Paperback – October 18, 1993
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Grade 4-6 Young readers won't roam far from Buffalo, for Patent's book is attractive, accurate and clearly written. As the buffalo is followed through the seasons in Yellowstone National Park and the National Bison Range in Montana, Patent discusses both the habits and behavior of this historically important animal and the careful management needed to maintain it in its current artificial environment. The lucid, well-written text is further enhanced by many black-and-white photographs, including an exciting sequence depicting two bulls fighting. A good complement to this contemporary study of the bison is Jack Denton Scott's Return of the Buffalo (Putnam, 1976; o.p.) which tells more of the bison's history and importance to the American Indian. Patent's book will make a useful addition to any library collection not only as a behavioral study of the American bison but as a success story in wildlife management and the return of an endangered species.
