The Plains Bison, which at their zenith numbered between 30 and 70 million animals, once ranged from Alaska to the northern tier of Mexican states, and from the East Coast to the West Coast of North America. The demise of the herd did not come until the Euro-American expansion westward in the late 19th century. But thanks to the cross-cultural efforts of ranchers, public-lands managers, and tribal nations, the Plains Bison has made a welcome comeback during the 20th century. The North American Plains Bison meat yields a marvelously tender, slightly sweet flavor with subtle reminders of the pasture in which the animal was raised.
