University of California Press, Berkeley & Los Angeles; 1961, with a Foreword by Lewis Gannett. 255 pp.; photographs and frontis port. Ex-library David Aberle, Professor of Anthropology at UBC for many years, with his name stamp on front paste-down, Else Fine in VG dustwrapper with sun-faded spine. In Canada, James Howley wrote of the extermination of the Beothucks of Newfoundland, and gave shelter to a woman who was the last surviving member of that tribe until her death in 1829. The American counterpart was documented in this work recounting the life and death of the lone survivor of the Yahi. “Ishi stumbled into the twentieth century on the morning of August 29, 1911, when, desperate with hunger and in terror of the white murderers of his family, he was found in the corral of a slaughter house near Oroville, California.” He was eventually cared for, and protected by, the staff of the University of California’s Museum of Anthropology. An important biography, 'lest we forget'.
