In the heart of Wyoming sprawls the ancient homeland of the
Eastern Shoshone Indians, who were forced by the U.S. government to
share a reservation in the Wind River basin and flanking mountain
ranges with their historical enemy, the Northern Arapahos. Both
tribes lost their sovereign, wide-ranging ways of life and economic
dependence on decimated buffalo. Tribal members subsisted on
increasingly depleted numbers of other big game-deer, elk, moose,
pronghorn, and bighorn sheep. In 1978, the tribal councils
petitioned the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to help them recover
their wildlife heritage. Bruce Smith became the first wildlife
biologist to work on the reservation. Wildlife on the Wind
recounts how he helped Native Americans change the course of
conservation for some of America's most charismatic wildlife.
