The Pendleton Prairie Rush Hour throw blanket honors the bison or buffalo, the largest land mammal of North America. An adult buffalo can weigh up to 2000 pounds, stand as high as 6??? and run as fast as 35 miles per hour. Not so long ago millions of buffalo roamed free throughout North America. They roamed through mountains, prairies and valleys and were the most important animal to Native Americans. The buffalo was revered and provided food, clothing and shelter to Native Americans. Today the last remaining herds of buffalo can be seen in our National Parks with the largest herd residing in Yellowstone.
