Opening this program with the song "Home on the Range," Bash tells of the importance of the American buffalo to the Plains Indian and how the buffalo led the early explorers over natural passes and up easy grades as the Western migration began. She describes an Indian buffalo hunt and the ways in which the animal was used for clothing, food and shelter. Songs also include "Buffalo Boy" (sometimes called "When We Gonna Marry"), and the music later made into a popular song, "Buffalo Gals."
