While contemporaries and historians alike hailed the establishment

of Buffalo National Park in Wainwright, Alberta as a wildlife saving

effort, the political climate of the early 20th century worked against


The Canadian Parks Branch was never sufficiently funded to operate

BNP effectively or to remedy the crises the animals faced as a result.

Cross-breeding experiments with bison and domestic cattle proved

unfruitful. Attempts at commercializing the herd had no success.

Ultimately, the Department of National Defence repurposed the park for

military training and the bison disappeared once more.

This book sheds light on the history of Canada's national parks,

bison recovery efforts, and environmental thought in the first half

of the twentieth century.

Jennifer Brower received her MA in 2004 from the University of Alberta. She currently works at the Buffalo National Park Foundation in Wainwright, Alberta. Her research continues to focus on BNP and on the history of east-central Alberta.
