American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon, by Steve Rinella is his account of winning a permit to hunt and kill wild American bison in Alaska, in which he embarks on a journey through history, science and popular culture. He detours to England to get a bison skull carbon dated, looks for signs of the first people to hunt the beasts, and spends time dodging grizzlies. He achieves his goal of killing a buffalo and then must set about getting it out of the wilderness…. And he’s cute. Give that man a TV show.
