The Definitive Movie About A Buffalo Riding Guy
22 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

Buffalo Jones (1844–1919)was a real person who worked to preserve the American bison and may be the inspiration for this fictional film. He was the first Game Warden of Yellowstone Park and one of the Founders of Garden City, Kansas home of Buffalo Jones Elementary School whose goal is "To create a community of competent bilingual, bi-literate, and culturally sensitive learners."

chiefmusician87 asked if it is possible to still see this movie; it is in the Public Domain and available on Youtube.

The epic saloon shoot-out is not to be missed and can be viewed by googling "Guy On A Buffalo - Episode 4: Finale Part 2", adapted with new narration and music by the bluegrass band, The Possum Posse.
