It is important to point out that this book, despite its title, is less than 1/4 on the life of Chief Ka-Mi-Akin. Most of the book is about the adventures of Mr. Splawn, who was mostly a cowboy and rancher. There are 'endless' accounts of cattle drives to British Columbia, Montana, Portland, etc. That isn't to say it isn't an interesting book. Mr. Splawn personally knew many of the important Indians - such as Ka-Mi-Akin and Chief Moses - and most of the first settlers to the Yakima area of Washington State. He gives a first-hand account of the Perkin's murders. He also tells about Rev. Wilbur, the anti-Catholic Indian agent who traveled all the way to Washington, D.C., to keep the priests from serving their converts, converts going back twenty years before Wilbur became the government's Indian agent. There is a lot of history here, and most of it is very interesting. But, don't expect to read 500 pages on the great Yakima chief - his story ends on page 130 [at least, in the 1944 edition of the 1917 book].
