DAN FLORES "Environmental History and the Demise of the Bison: Rethinking an Iconic Story"
This lecture will be of particular interest to environmental historians, historians of the Great Plains, and historians interested in comparative frontiers.
Dan Flores is the A.B. Hammond Chair in Western History at the University of Montana. A writer and professor who divides his time between the Bitterroot Valley of Montana and the Galisteo River Valley outside Santa Fe, New Mexico, he is the author of eight books, most recently Horizontal Yellow (1999), The Natural West (2001), and Southern Counterpart to Lewis & Clark (2002). His work on the environment, art, and culture of the West also appears in magazines such as Texas Monthly, The Big Sky Journal, Southwest Art, and High Country News. His 1991 article in the Journal of American History launched a vigorous reappraisal of the timing and casuses of the bison’s collapse in the Great Plains.
