Description

Clarence “Cy” Young recalls his experiences with two different horses that he rode at the National Bison Range and compares their temperaments. He describes finding an albino buffalo calf, which the Range called Whitey, and the subsequent breeding experiment that took place, producing a second, blind albino offspring. Young talks about a fire in 1934 that burned most of the vegetation on the Range. He also details his involvement and stunt double riding for two movies that were filmed on the Bison Range: The Big Trail (1930) and The Plainsman (1936). Young discusses the other employees and livestock at the Range.
