Interview with poet Frank X Walker on the expanded edition of
Buffalo Dance: The Journey of York

It has always troubled me a bit that the book was more popular out west than in Kentucky. I fear that people don’t think of it as a Kentucky story, although nine young men from Kentucky along with York and Clark all joined the expedition at the Falls of the Ohio.
