This book is pretty much along the same lines as "Ishi in Two Worlds." I would recommend both books for a better perspective of Ishi. An interesting thing about this book is that it starts off with an account of a white man starving in the woods. In his journal, he goes into great detail of how he plans to hunt down and kill an Indian to eat. The story is very disturbing and demented. "...Oh if I can only take him! then I will have one hearty meal! My mouth fairly watered for a piece of an Indian to broil..." The man later tracks down the Indian and tries to comunicate but the Indian does not speak his tongue. The white man jestures to the Indian that he is hungry but the Indian says he has no food. As the Indian turns his back and begins to walk away, the man takes aim with his Rifle. As he is about to shoot, he hesitates. "He could not bare to shoot the poor wretch in the back."

In the following section of the book is a series of letters to the U.S. Government requesting troops as well as battle plans for the extermanation of the Yana Indians.

The book carries on all the way to the end when Ishi passes away...

A must Read for all "Americans!"

We purchased for our local library. One of our speakers had talked some on Ishi so there was interest from people about him.
