History Comics: The American Bison
Turn back the clock with History Comics, First Second's new middle-grade nonfiction graphic novel series! In this volume, learn how millions of bison once roamed the American prairie-until they were nearly driven to extinction. Following the success of Science Comics, First Second is launching a new nonfiction series: History Comics! These page-turning and gorgeously illustrated graphic novels allow you to experience history like never before! Fight for equality in the Montgomery Bus Boycott, train with the first civilian selected for a mission to space, help spark a rebellion at the Stonewall Riot, and so much more! Turn back the clock to the early 18th century, when the American prairies shook under the hooves of nearly 30 million bison. Fast as a horse, tall as a person, and heavier than both combined, they roamed from coast to coast. A century later, people struggled to find a single one left alive. How did the great herds disappear, and what will it take to bring them back?
