About this book

Tells the story of two American conservationists, Frank and Deborah Popper and their plan to restore North America's great plains by reintroducing the buffalo that once roamed there. Matthews follows the Poppers from Montana to Texas as they try to sell their idea in seminar rooms and small-town living rooms, cattle lots, and cornfields.

An admirably crafted book, as poignant and entertaining as it is informative. - Seattle Times "Where the Buffalo Roam is very bright, active, effective journalism....An extremely savvy overlook of the dilemmas of the Great Plains." - Wallace Stegner
