Last Stand : George Bird Grinnell, the Battle to Save the Buffalo, and the Birth of the New West
Traces the efforts of a late-nineteenth-century environmentalist who sought to protect buffalo that were being systematically slaughtered by out-of-work Civil War veterans promoting "manifest destiny" settlements in the West, in an account that cites Grinnell's role in launching the modern conservation movement.
