American Indians of the Pacific North West by Elizabeth von Aderkas

Book Description

This book explores the Indians of the Pacific North West - where about one third of all Native Americans are believed to have once lived. It details the area's two distinct cultures: Coastal and Plateau. The Coastal tribes were famously warlike, and contact with whites from the 1770s and the Gold Rush led to conflicts with the US government, particularly in the mid 19th century. The Modoc War of 1875 in the Lava Fields, one of the most savagely fought of all, and its leader Kintpuash - 'Captain Jack' - are examined. With a wealth of illustrations and lavish colour plates from Christa Hook this title is a fascinating exploration of the lives of these famous warriors.
