Beaver, Bison, Horse: The Traditional Knowledge and Ecology of the Northern Great Plains by R. Grace Morgan includes a foreword by James Daschuk, author of Clearing the Plains and an afterword by Cristina Eisenberg, who is Indigenous and the author of The Carnivore Way and The Wolf’s Tooth. Beaver, Bison, Horse is an interdisciplinary account of the ecological relationships the Indigenous nations of the Plains had to the beaver, bison, horse, and their habitat prior to contact. Morgan’s research shows an ecological understanding that sustained Indigenous peoples for thousands of years, with critical information on how the beaver manage water systems and protect communities from drought in the Northern Great Plains.
