Now, in this richly illustrated new book, Q. David Bowers relates the history--and predicts the future--of the "Monarch of the Plains." Bowers explores famous images of bison on American coins (including the Buffalo Nickel), medals, tokens and paper money. A chapter on the bison in American pop culture covers songs, advertising, sports teams, Wild West shows, movies, television, jokes and more. Selected buffalo and bison places on the map are also covered. Finally, Bowers looks forward to the future of this noble animal.
