By the late 1800s the free-ranging buffalo that for thousands of years had dominated the western plains of North America were all but extinct, losers to the settlers in the competition for space. This film, intercut with interviews, eye-witness accounts, archival photos and live action, is the story of the buffalo's revival. Combining adventure and intrigue, The Great Buffalo Saga documents our fascination with and manipulation of this ancient and legendary animal that has withstood ice ages, roundups, disease and near annihilation.
