Editorial Reviews

Review

''A beautiful book, written and illustrated with a genuine sympathy...A serious and compelling re-creation.''--The Pacific Sun

''Remarkable insight in to the lives of the Ohlone Indians.''--San Francisco Chronicle

''Margolin conveys the texture of daily life, birth, marriage, death, war, the arts, and rituals, and he also discusses the brief history of the Ohlones under the Spanish, Mexican, and American regimes...Margolin does not give way to romanticism or political harangues, and the illustrations have a gritty quality that is preferable to the dreamy, pretty pictures that too often accompany texts like this.''--Choice

''One of three books that brought me the most joy over the past year.''-- Alice Walker

''[Margolin] has written thoroughly and sensitively of the Pre-Mission Indians in a North American land of plenty. Excellent, well-written.'' --American Anthropologist

From the Publisher

Included in the San Francisco Chronicle's Top 100 Non-fiction books of the century.
