Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump In a tipi. ... Just saying those words inside my head made me see buffalos jumping over the cliff above my tipi, jumping to their mangled ... But, why would any buffalo be stupid enough to jump over a cliff?

Buffalo Jump

Sebastian, a twenty-first century boy, finds himself living amongst the Blackfoot people, in a time before any European had set foot in America. In this time, vast herds of buffalo roamed the plains, and the Blackfoot tribe's survival depended on the annual buffalo jump, when a herd of buffalo would be driven over a cliff for their meat and hides. Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump was such a cliff, and it is said that its name derives from the legend of a Blackfoot boy who foolishly watched from the base of the cliff as the buffalo fell. As the tribe prepares for the day of the buffalo jump, Sebastian's bond with his Blackfoot brother, Four Falcons, grows ever stronger, and through their adventures, Sebastian's life becomes entwined in the legend of Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, until the legend and the boy become one.
