January 13: The Coming The Coming is an epic novel of native-white relations in North America, intimately told through the life of Daytime Smoke -the real-life red-haired son of William Clark and a Nez Perce woman. Capturing the trajectory experienced by so many native peoples-- from friendship and cooperation to betrayal, war, and genocide--this sweeping novel, with its large cast of characters and vast geography, braids historical events with the drama of one man's remarkable life. February 10: American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon In 2005, Steven Rinella won a lottery permit to hunt for a wild buffalo, or American bison, in the Alaskan wilderness. Despite the odds- there's only a 2 percent chance of drawing ther pemit, and fewer than 20 percent of those hunters are successful - Rinella managed to kill a buffalo on a snow-covered mountainside. Throughout these adventures, Rinella found himself contemplating his own place among the 14,000 years' worth of buffalo hunters in North America, as well as the buffalo's place in the American experience. Now that the buffalo is on the verge of a dramatic ecological recovery across the West, Americans are faced with the challenge of how, and if, we can dare to share our land withe a beast that is the embodiment of the American wilderness. March 10: Betrayal at the Buffalo Ranch When Angus Clyborn's Buffalo Ranch opens in Cherokee Country, murder, thievery, and a missing white buffalo calf take Sadie Walela and her wolf-dog on a dangerous and wild ride.
