Receiving a small boat for his birthday was exciting for eleven year old Peter. It also lead him on an adventure learning that the rivers and bay were unhealthy and that many creatures were dying from pollution. Through an old Indian and a mystical buffalo, the boy and others learned what was wrong and how to make their rivers healthy again.
The Buffalo and the River is an exciting and enlightening story for children, their parents and teachers, telling how important our natural heritage is and that all people must work together to preserve it for the future.
