Bookends on the Range

Cast Iron "Bison on the Range" Bookends (LEO Design)

We continue our introduction of recently-acquired bookends with a trip to the American Prairie.  The bookends above, cast in iron in the 1930’s, show an American Bison surveying his domain from atop a bluff.  Vast herds of these beasts once roamed the American West; imagine the trembling ground, the rising dust, and the deafening roar as tens of thousands of hooves stampeded across the flat, Midwestern terrain.

More bookends tomorrow.
