Author Talk with Keith Aune

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 6:00pm

We are delighted to welcome Keith Aune to read from his new book, Theodore Roosevelt & Bison Restoration on the Great Plains. Rapidly disappearing bison in the late 1800s prompted progressive thinkers to call for the preservation of wild lands and wildlife in North America. Following a legendary hunt for the last wild bison in central Montana, Dr. William Hornady sought to immortalize the West's most iconic species. Activists like Theodore Roosevelt rose to the call, initiating a restoration plan that seemed almost incomprehensible in that era.
