Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover


“With impressive research and detail, Anne Schroeder writes in a voice of authority. She has created a vivid depiction of a people, the Salinan of California, in the first half of the 19th century.”

―Lucia St. Clair Robson, award-winning author of Ride the Wind and Last Train from Cuernavaca

“This is an enjoyable and informative read for those interested in California history and its native peoples. It is an accurate portrayal of the Salinan Indian experience. Cruel injustice occurred in many forms during mission secularization, the gold rush, and early statehood. Maria Inés’s poignant story was replayed many times throughout rugged California but our ancestors survived to contribute to who we are today.”

―Suzanne Pierce Taylor, Salinan Elder and author of The Ancestors Speak

About the Author

A fifth-generation Californian, Anne Schroeder's love of the West was fueled by stories of bandits and hangings, of her great-great-grandfather and his neighbors working together to blast the Norwegian Grade in Southern California out of solid rock, of Indian caves and of women who made their own way. She worked her way through Cal Poly with a variety of odd-jobs that included waitressing at a truck-stop café in Cholame, near the spot where James Dean died. Anne currently serves as President of Women Writing the West. Her short stories and essays have appeared in print and online magazines. She lives in Southern Oregon with her husband, dogs, and several free-range chickens. http://anneschroederauthor.blogspot.com/; www.facebook.com/anneschroederauthor
