A Buffalo in the House - R. D. Rosen


The true story of a man, an animal, and the American West.


Add to Cart

A sprawling suburban house in Santa Fe is not the kind of home where a buffalo normally roams, but then Veryl Goodnight and Roger Brooks are not your ordinary animal lovers. Over a hundred years after Veryl's ancestors Charles and Mary Ann Goodnight hand-raised two baby buffalo to help save the species from extinction, the sculptor and her husband adopt an orphaned buffalo calf of their own. Against the tragic backdrop of the old American West, A Buffalo in the House tells the story of a household that redefines family in a really big way.

Charlie has no idea just how strong the bond between a middle-aged man an a buffalo can be. In the historical shadow of the near-extinction of a majestic and misunderstood animal, Roger sets out to save just one buffalo. Writing in the tradition of great human-animal relationship stories like Born Free and Marley & Me, R.D. Rosen tells the story of a single animal's ability to touch human lives and, in Charlie's case, reconnect people of all ages to the vanished past.


"I was completely hooked. A superb book. Rosen writes

beautifully. I wish it could be read by everyone."

- Jeffrey Masson, bestselling author of

When Elephants Weep, Dogs Never Lie About Love,

and The Nine Emotional Lives of Cats


"This is a book so riveting in its details that only after

you've put it down do you begin to grasp the

extent of Richard Rosen's accomplishment. From the

story of one stray baby bison named Charlie Buffalo

and the family that took him in, Rosen has drawn a

sweeping history of the American frontier - of the people

ho tried to destroy it and the ones detrained to

ave it. I can't remember when i've been instructed so

gracefully, or entertained to such deep purpose."

Jane Kramer, staff writer at The New Yorker
