By Lori Calabrese Writes!
Powerful. . . . you can’t help but feel close to the main character, Walking Coyote. You feel for his family who is poor and on a mission to save these creatures one by one. You’re also pulled in by the story of the calf who loses her herd and eventually becomes a leader herself. The story reminds us just how important these animals are to America and it gives us an idea of the individuals who took on such a huge undertaking. If it wasn’t for Walking Coyote and others, we wouldn’t have our memories of watching those Buffalo bat their tails at the zoo. For that alone, I recommend everyone to read Buffalo Song. — Lori Calabrese Writes!
