Written in 1889, The Extermination of the American Bison is a timely recounting of the history and destruction of the buffalo and a landmark work in early conservation advocacy. Hanna Rose Shell's insightful introduction emphasizes how Hornaday's appeal for wildlife conservation continues to resonate today. It also provides a unique window into a forgotten network of taxidermists, hunters, and animal preservationists that shaped contemporary conservation movements.
