Mari Sandoz' history of buffalo hunting focuses on a short span of years: 1867 to 1888. This reinforces the incredible decimation of the North American herds of bison, but it also contributes to the elegiac tone here. The book, which of necessity describes how the Plains Indians were defeated as much by the decimation of the buffalo as by military action, ends appropriately with the Wounded Knee Massacre.

I've only just read the foreword so far, but I can tell it's from a liberal viewpoint. Still should be helpful in researching for my story, though.
