Volume I - A through D - of a proposed multi - volume set of books on the decade of the buffalo hide hunters. Entries include mini-biographies of these men, from Waldo P. Abbott through J.N. DuBois, 335 men (and a few women) who hunted buffalo in the decade and a half, from 1870 - 1885. Miles Gilbert, author of a previous book and numerous articles about buffalo hunters, began research on the book in 1994; Leo Remiger, from Anchorage, Alaska, heard about Miles' research, offered his own cache of names and bios, as did Sharon Cunningham in 1996. Since then, this trio has spent many hundreds of hours traveling, calling, e-mailing and searching museums, archives, libraries books, newspapers and magazine articles to find as many of these buffalo hunters and skinners as possible.
