When Buffalo Ran tells the story of a young, mid nineteenth century Plains Indian, named Wikis. As Wikis grows, he encounters many wild buffalo and enemy tribes. Along the way, he is guided by his uncle, a mentor and tutor, who teaches him all the necessary skills to become an Indian Brave.

After dedicating a lifetime to researching Native Americans, Grinnell’s compelling book artistically captures the voice of a young plains Indian, and his life on the plains. Readers will sympathize with Wikis throughout his adventures, laughing, crying and learning new things with him as he grows from a young boy to a skilled and fearsome warrior for his people.
