The story of The Buffalo Herds of 1872 takes a wagon ride with Richard Irving Dodge to a high point above the plains called Pawnee Rock. The story written and produced by Mike King provides a clear description of the great southern herd coming north for the summer grass. This herd of buffalo was no less than four hundred and eighty thousand in number as they cross the plains of Kansas in June of 1872. While on Pawnee Rock the future commander of Fort Dodge reflects back on a time when he and his men held off a massive buffalo charge along the banks of the Arkansas River Valley. The production narrated by Brad Smalley provides nine layers of sound effects, which are best, experienced with a set of headphones. The listener will experience the sounds of a night camp along the riverbanks of the Arkansas River and the sounds of buffalo hoofs shaking the ground during a massive charge.
