A Pennsylvania Bison Hunt
ONLY 1 LEFT THEN IT IS OUT OF PRINT!
Henry W. Shoemaker retells the buffaloes’ history on our early Pennsylvania frontier and an exciting story it is. Shoemaker, a master at mixing local oral traditions and history; combined with his genius with the pen describing places in time, are something to behold. What a most exciting time on the PA frontier. “I hear the tramp of the bison herds, the shouts of the victorious hunters, or maybe the blood-curdling cry of the panther. Then my mind goes back still further, and I hear my father tell how his father took part in the hunting of the last herds of bison in old Pennsylvania, of Indian massacres, of pioneer hardships and I feel proud to be a scion of such sturdy stock. Yes, indeed, I have much to be thankful for in this grand world; I have lived, I have struggled, I have harmed no one, in my advanced age I am at peace, I am content.” Such is the romanticism and feeling associated with our Pennsylvania frontier-hunting heritage.
