As we traveled through neighboring Kenya, Nairobi National Park evoked surprisingly powerful nostalgia for North American prairies. Surrounded by zebras, buffalo, and several species of antelope, I imagined the richness of other equally grand, now extinct savanna faunas: not many centuries back the Great Plains held thirty million bison, and only twelve thousand years ago mammoths, ground sloths, and saber-toothed cats inhabited North America.
