The Story of A North American GiantBook - 1995
In Buffalo Sunrise: The Story of a North American Giant, Diane Swanson introduces young readers to the fascinating world of an awesome animal. Through a combination of facts, anecdotes, and legends, they will discover how the surprisingly agile buffalo moves on tiptoe as it picks its way along narrow ledges and how it sometimes goes swimming just for fun. They will read about "buffalo birds" that warm their feet in the thick fur on buffaloes backs and will find out why the birth of a white buffalo is so miraculous. They will also discover how buffaloes nearly disappeared from our planet a hundred years ago, but were saved just in time.Amazing archival images and stunning full-color photographs combined with Swanson's award-winning text will make this book a favorite with young readers.
