Lois Worth Woodruff was a professional hunter on the plains and in the forests of Kenya, Uganda and Tanganyika during the first half of the last century. Now, forty years after his death, it's time to meet some of his trackers, gun-bearers and clients. This is a simple story, simply told, but that in itself is what makes 'Two Buffaloes' a glimpse into how it was then... a piece of East African history that is rapidly being lost.
Wilson should have just walked away when three men came looking for a way to boost a valuable piece of art. But the heist was more than just a job for Wilson; it was a chance to get off the sidelines and back in the game.
This fascinating picture book biography tells the childhood story of Buffalo Bird Woman-a Hidatsa Indian born around 1839. Through her true story, readers learn what it was like to be part of this Native American community, which lived along the Missouri River in the Dakotas, a society that depended on agriculture for food and survival rather than hunting. Using original artwork and archival photographs, award-winning author/illustrator S. D. Nelson has captured the spirit of Buffalo Bird Girl and her lost way of life. The book includes a bibliography and an index, as well as an author's note and timeline of events.
