The Last of the Plainsmen – Adventures with Charles Jesse “Buffalo” Jones by Zane Grey. Originally published 1908. Paperback; 234 pages. Copyright 2021 by Rim Country Museum Press.
There is no frontier today in the sense that our fathers understood the term, and the picturesque frontiersman of a general ago has gone with the buffalo on the “Long Trail.” One of the old guard, however, still remains, Buffalo Jones, a strange character, whose name is in many homes a household word. Doctor Grey made an extended trip with the old under recently, through the Arizona desert in pursuit of mountain lions and other large game. He has written partly a study of the unique personality of the preserver of the American Bison, as Buffalo Jones is called, and partly a record of some episodes in his early life. It is a fascinating book, full of adventure, and the love of outdoor life. (1908)
