Elmer Kelton's westerns are filled with authentic details and unforgettable characters. With works including The Smiling Country and Texas Rifles, he has won six Golden Spur Awards and attracted a world-wide audience of fans. By 1873, the great buffalo herds have been all but wiped out, and the hide hunters are looking for other work. So when Gage Jameson hears of one remaining herd, he sees a final opportunity to make a huge profit. But to find the buffalo, he will have to take his line of wagons deep into Comanche territory, where death lurks behind every rock. Kelton's feel for the last days of the American West is evident in each chapter of Buffalo Wagons. As Jameson and his crew journey further into danger, the growing tension is dramatically voiced by Audie Awarda-winning narrator George Guidall.
