Says publisher David Comstock “We believe it is the only complete—and authentic—history of a local Native American tribe ever to be assembled by its living members. ”— Kit
California’s Nevada County has been the home of one Nisenan Tribe for many thousands of years. Johnson writes about the tribe into which he was born, presenting new and old information from multiple sources—including hundreds of documents from national, state and municipal archives, contemporary newspapers, and tribal elders. Until now information about the Nisenan people was widely scattered, with only bits and pieces being recorded. Never before has such a comprehensive work been assembled by the living members of a unique American tribe.
