From the Dust…Thunder                     Darrell Davis

From the dust …Thunder, speaks to a time when great herds of bison roamed the Great Plains creating great clouds of dust and out of that dust came the sounds of, as many described it, thunder. The thunder of tens of thousands of buffalo roaming across the open prairies. Nearly hunted to literal extinction, the bison has made a miraculous come back and has become a beloved symbol of the American West. Thusly, “From the dust…Thunder” is also a metaphor for the incredible resurrections that can occur after all is thought to have been lost.”
