Ishi in Two Worlds: A Biography of the Last Wild Indian in North America
Ishi in Two Worlds: A Biography of the Last Wild Indian in North America
by Theodora Kroeber, Karl Kroeber, Lewis Gannett
Book Description:
The life story of Ishi, the Yahi Indian, lone survivor of a doomed tribe, is unique in the annals of North American anthropology. For more than forty years, Theodora Kroeber's biography has been sharing this tragic and absorbing drama with readers all over the world. Ishi stumbled into the twentieth century on the morning of August 29, 1911, when, desperate with hunger and with terror of the white murderers of his family, he was found in the corral of a slaughterhouse near Oroville, California. Finally identified as an Indian by an anthropologist, Ishi was brought to San Francisco by Professor T. T. Waterman and lived there the rest of his life under the care and protection of Alfred Kroeber and the staff of the University of California's Museum of Anthropology. Karl Kroeber adds an informative tribute to the text, describing how the book came to be and how Theodora Kroeber's approach to the project was both a product of her era and of her insight and her empathy. 32 b/w photographs, 5 line illustrations, 1 map

View from the Medicine Lodge: Stories from the American Indian's Soul
by Jim Great Elk Waters
Book Description In the Native American culture there is no word for "religion" because they believe that all of life is permeated with spirituality. In View from the Medicine Lodge, Jim Great Elk Waters writes about his experiences as a spiritual being on this human journey as an Indian, a shaman, a tribal leader, a husband, a father, a son, and an American. In these writings, he expresses the magic of the Native American mystical past, the unsure role of his people in the present, and their bright hope for the future. The essays, stories, and poetry are written with wisdom, insight, and a love for nature and man's invisible bond with it. As Waters reveals the depths of his soul, he helps others in their quest to find peace and balance in today's stress-filled world.
