I enjoyed the challenge of writing Camas and Sage: A Story of Bison Life on the Prairie. It’s geared for the whole family, so it has two levels. One is a fictional story for young readers about a bison calf born on the American Prairie Reserve, and how she experiences her first year of life. The other level consists of more detailed information about the bison and other prairie life.
is a new children’s book by Dorothy Patent and illustrated by Christina Wald that invites readers to discover the northern great plains in a truly unique way: through the eyes and ears of a bison calf!
Yes, and the book is written in two layers, an imagined story of a bison calf’s first year that shows how these powerful animals live and survive on the prairie and frequent sidebars that go into more detail for older readers to learn more about bison life. So all family members can learn about bison together reading “Camas & Sage.”
