What the Heck is a Royal Buffalo Hunt?
Thoughts on the Royal Buffalo Hunt and Fall 2009: I would have loved to have been present to see the meshing of three dramatically different cultures for this historic event. Led by the flamboyant William Cody, who was already starting to become the showman we know today; I can quite imagine the spectacle. In my mind's eye, I can see Custer & Alexei enjoying too much caviar and Champagne. (and the women too, if you read between the lines) I can see a brooding Chief Spotted Tail reluctantly performing mock Indian fights in trade for 17 wagon loads of supplies, and above all I can see the majesty of God's pristine plains covered in the once abundant buffalo. It is to my Creator, my family and to the memory of those hunters that I dedicate this collection. Cheryl September 2008
