Bison society is composed of individuals and families, of bands and clans that span many generations. Portraits of the Bison describes, in easily understood detail, who the individuals are that make up this society. It identifies them through drawings, photographs, and text and even a stranger to bison society can view a herd and within a short while, discern who the members of a group are and how they relate to each other and even provides a glimpse into their unique life history. Wes Olson is a Senior Warden at Elk Island National Park in Alberta, Canada and has been observing bison behaviour across North America for over thirty years. His drawings and photographs of these magnificient animals throughout the book illustrate his knowledge of bison society. Johane Janelle has travelled extensively with her husband, Wes Olson, to photograph the plains and wood bison of North America. Her love of horses has developed into a custom equine photography business and her photographs have graced horse magazines in Canada and the United States. Together Wes and Johane own and operate the Broken Lantern Ranch, where they raise purebred plains bison and Canadian warmblood horses.
