Editorial Reviews


California's Gold Rush era was nothing less than a time of pure, unadulterated genocide. . . . Trafzer and Hyer offer a brilliant book based on original research from newspapers that document one of the most tragic episodes in American history. -- Larry Myers [Pomo] Executive Secretary, California Native American Heritage Commission

The typical Californian generally knows nothing about the genocide committed against the native people. . . . We need to see and to witness the hatred and racism of a society that not only affected early California history but continues today in all its various forms. Teachers who are required to cover this subject matter should be greatly enriched with accurate, evidentiary and documental records. What an opportunity to critically inquire and to learn about comparative political systems, social issues, economic and philosophical ramifications. -- Jack Norton [Hupa Historian] Costo Chair, University of California, Riverside
