Publisher: University of Oklahoma Press (1981), Norman, OK
Publication Date: 1981
Book Condition: Very Good
Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine
Signed: Signed By Author
Edition: First Edition.
403 pages. An account of the often brutal interactions between white settlers and the Native Americans living in the Round Valley, in Northern Mendocino County, California. Since descendants of some of the worst offenders still live in the region, rumors of their attempts to supress the book abound, Its relative scarcity is due to a more prosaic chain of events. After an allegation of (unintentional) plagiarism was leveled against the section written by Estle Beard, the publisher investigated, agreed with the complaint, and withdrew the book from sale. Since both authors have since passed away, it seems unlikely that this book will ever be republished or converted into an e-book. The original hardcover is the only way to read about this troubled era in Northern California's history. Inscribed by the Carranco on half-title page. First edition (first printing). Very good copy in a near fine dust jacket. Some foxing to page edges. Bookseller Inventory # 139858
