    Inspired by the real life story of Texas pioneer and rancher Mary Ann Goonight, Tracey E Fern tells the fictional story of Molly, a rancher s wife who has a soft spot for orphaned animals A buffalo lover from the first, Molly is dismayed when hunters almost wipe out the species, and agrees to take in two young buffalo calves when a cowboy brings them to her This is the start of her own herd, which she slowly assembles from young survivors of the buffalo massacres Eventually, after the establishment of the national parks, Molly sends some of her buffalo to help supply the herd being established in Yellowstone National Park.An engaging enough tale, told in alliterative prose and accompanied by lovely artwork from Caldecott Honoree Lauren Castillo, Buffalo Music would have been all the better, in my opinion, if it had been a straight picture book biography of the real woman who inspired this fictionalized retelling Given that the original subject was such an interesting character, why not write a non fiction book about her Leaving that disappointment aside, I found the narrative here engaging, and did appreciate Tracey Fern s afterword, in which she gave information about Mary Ann Goodnight, and suggested further reading ideas Recommended to anyone looking for children s stories about efforts to save the buffalo, in the face of its imminent extinction because of over hunting Perhaps as a companion book to Joseph Bruchac s Buffalo Song , a picture book about the efforts of Flathead Indians to preserve this marvelous species.

    note historical fiction would read again when studying history about western expansion.

    CIP summary After hunters kill off the buffalo around her Texas ranch, a woman begins raising orphan buffalo calves and eventually ships four members of her small herd to Yellowstone National Park, where they form the beginnings of newly thriving buffalo herds Based on the true story of Mary Ann Goodnight and her husband Charles I have read about the buffalos being hunted out west, but this book really helped to show how quickly the herds of buffalo were wiped out by the 20th century This book shows the determination of one person and how it s impacted buffalo extinction today This would be a great book to read with students when talking about the westward movement.

    How interesting two picture books about the preservation of the American Buffalo in one season I enjoyed the text of this one MUCH than that of the Bruchac There is a liveliness to the telling and energy that match the characteristic of a woman who would devote her time and energy to a nature cause The illustrations serve the text well but that s it.

    Based on the true story of Mary Ann Goodnight and her husband, Charles, this historical fiction picture book tells the story of a woman s love for animals and her determination to save the buffalo from extinction in the late nineteenth century After hunters kill all of the buffalo around her ranch in Texas, Molly starts raising orphan buffalo calves Eventually she sends four of her animals to Yellowstone National Park to help start herds there This would be a good book to share with kids, especially as part of a study of pioneer days and westward expansion The illustrations by Lauren Castillo are beautiful and really help bring this story to life.

    This book would be a great way to introduce a National Parks unit It is a story of a lady that love to hear the sound of the buffalo while she does her daily chores Soon buffalo hunters come and shot hundreds of buffalo a day until there were no buffalo to hear any A cowhand find to orphaned buffalo calves and brings them to the lady, she raises them and soon word gets out that she is raising buffalo calves and many cowhands begin bringing her orphaned calves When get word that Yellowstone National Park is looking to rebuild its buffalo herd, she sends her herd there to live.

    I chose to read this book because it is historical fiction, allowing the reader to connect to history through a fictional story to create a interesting story rather than reading about each historical event individually The book generated questions about individuals and groups who have shaped a significant historical change as well as allowed the reader to compare life in a specific historical time period to life today The historical figure, Mary Ann Goodnight made a major impact in building Yellow Stone and other buffalo reserves Readers may be inspired to visit or even donate to buffalo reserves after reading this inspirational picture book.

    Buffalo roamed in large herds across the United States until they nearly became extinct due to hunters slaughtering them This story is based on a real woman who raised orphan buffalo calves and started a new herd from which the species was saved from extinction.
