Ishi: The Last of His People


5 New & Used Starting at $1.99


During the nineteenth century, as American settlers pushed west in search of land and gold, the native peoples called the Yahi fled into the hills and forest. After years of suffering raids by white settlers, and trying to survive on a starvation diet of forest food and the few items they could steal, the tribe grew smaller and smaller.

Then, on a hot August day in 1911 a solitary, emaciated man wandered down from Mount Lassen to the town of Oroville, California. This man, who was called Ishi by anthropologists at the University of California, was the last of the Yahi.
