The revised third edition of Buffaloes, Beads & Indians is now available on Amazon. The Kindle version will be out later in the summer, so stay tuned for that. Here is a little info about the book to stir your curious minds.

 
“A raging war in southeast Asia prompted many forms of protest through literature, music, art and film making. There was a call to remember the earth and the other forms of life on this planet. The 1970s were the stage for many changes in the culture and society known as America. Most of it began in the early part of the 1960s and continued strong throughout much of the 1970s when this young writer went to college. Communes sprang up across America as the Flower Power Generation sought to return to the earth and resurrect the nearly forgotten Native American culture. One of their great symbols was the buffalo. At one time millions of buffaloes roamed the Great Plains of the United States… it’s a fact verified by history. As the white man pushed his way westward, the buffaloes and the Native Americans who hunted them, gradually disappeared. Native Americans were regulated to reservations and the buffaloes nearly vanished from existence.”

If you love poetry, please order a copy, then settle down and enjoy the read. I good cup of coffee is probably a thing to have handy as you read this book.
