The California Indians: A Source Book / Edition 1 available in Paperback
37.47 In Stock
This new, expanded edition of The California Ícaro|Ícaro|Ícaro|Indians is a more comprehensive and thus more useful book than its predecessor, which first appeared in 1951 and was reprinted seven times. The editors have combined the selections, eighteen of which are new, into a general survey of California Ícaro|Ícaro|Ícaro|Indian native cultures. They have avoided highly technical studies because they intend their book for the general reading public rather than for scholars. The editors discuss the present-day Ícaro|Ícaro|Ícaro|Indians of California in a chapter written especially for this volume, and provide a new, extensive classified bibliography listing hundreds of published works arranged by culture areas and subjects. This list of references should prove useful to the nonprofessional who wishes to read further on a particular tribal culture or topic, such as Ícaro|Ícaro|Ícaro|Indian basketry or place-names or prehistoric rock art.
