Like any hide hunter on the Plains, he wanted to kill as many as he could, as quickly as he could.

He was an innovator, an adventurer, a romantic, a visionary. And once his vision shifted from the momentary gain of slaughtering buffalo to the lasting work of preserving them, he found his true calling—and his legacy. But first he took a wife in Indiana. The newlyweds soon headed west to Troy, Kan. Luck was with them.

Osage orange wood was in high demand among Kansas settlers; its tough wood made sturdy fence posts, its thorny branches a natural barbed wire for penning livestock. Jones found a partner, George Baker, and began a nursery. This venture soon proved too tame for Jones.

Herds were plentiful, and a minimal investment in gear and supplies would set anyone up in the trade. Jones ed the buckskin-clad cavalcade, and the once-sickly college boy quickly became a seasoned frontiersman and efficient hide harvester. Ultimately, though, it would convey another meaning. Any smashing of firearms was probably metaphorical.

Still, Grey correctly suggested that, for whatever reasons, Jones experienced an epiphany late in the decade. He renounced buffalo hunting, bought ranch land and—for a while, anyway—settled down. He lobbied successfully both to bring the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad through town and to have Garden named the county seat. But such civilized pursuits could never satisfy Jones.

He soon embarked on a new adventure. By the mids, the buffalo trade was as dead as the hides. First he gathered what straggling remnants he could find on the Great Plains, particularly calves. Through letters, telegrams and travel he sought any specimens alive on the continent. So did purchases from Montana rancher Charles Allard.

A trip to Manitoba netted 83 head, tweaking the Canadian government in the process. Wherever he could find bunches large or small, Jones bought and bartered. Inbreeding in such a small community would, over time, produce inferior animals, so Jones experimented with crossbreeding. These hybrids mainly were treated like any other livestock. Jones went to Washington. One of the last wild buffalo herds—30 or so—lived in Yellowstone National Park, and poachers were quickly thinning its meager ranks. His first efforts met with indifference.

In the government leased Jones 20, acres in New Mexico Territory to maintain a buffalo herd. In conservationist U. Jones, is doing exceedingly well. Jones held the post for five years, but collected and bred buffalo for years afterward. This, along with his exploits in Africa where among other feats he lassoed lionsmade him a celebrity.

Jones spent his last years in great demand on the lecture circuit, where he demonstrated his roping prowess and told thrilling—if embellished—tales. An adventurer to the end, Jones died October 1,from malaria contracted on his last African sojourn. By the time he died, Jones was probably sure the buffalo no longer faced extinction.
