One of the things that puzzles people today is how it became national policy to hunt the Buffalo nearly to extinction. They used to cover the Great Plains in their uncounted millions but their numbers were reduced to a small handful after hunters went after them without mercy.
What is a nomad? Who were the nomads of the Great Plains who followed the buffalo? How do you get nomads to give up their roaming ways and settle down?
It was good to catch another glimpse of the bison as we drove around Colorado. Naturally, the only place we saw any was up in the Rocky Mountains on our way to Breckinridge.
