Biggest little used bookstore in the world.
From the Publisher
Long ago, when the world was still quite new, buffaloes used to
eat people. It is true? The hair on their chins is hair of the
people they use to eat...It is Terrible to think about those
But the Creator saw the people''s distress and decreed that a
contest be held between all the two-legged and four-legged
creatures. Who would win, thundering Buffalo or fleet-footed Man?
None of the other animals was fast enough, and before the end,
Beaver and Muskrat slipped off into a cool stream, Jack-rabbit
hopped off across the plain, and Mole and Gopher tunneled
underground (and may still think the race is on).
The winner was decided long ago, in Sioux and Cheyenne legend.
Buffalo -- who lost -- agreed to give up eating men for dinner, and
thanks to the cunning of a single magpie, Man became the guardian
of the natural world.
