9780961012601: Tales from Tiburon: An anthology of adventures in Seriland

Tales from Tiburon is a collection of early first-hand accounts of adventures among the Seri Indians of Sonora, Mexico. These tales of exploration begin with Lt. R.W.H. Hardy's visit to Tiburon Island in 1826, and conclude with naturalist Charles Sheldon's adventures among the Seris in 1922. Also included are the never before published field notes of W. J. McGee, the first ethnologist to study the Seris, and the bizarre story of the disastrous Grindell prospecting expedition to the Seri country in 1905. Fascinating reading, Tales from Tiburon is a must for those interested in southwestern natural history and native peoples. Published by The Southwest Natural History Association of Phoenix, Arizona.
