The self-published memoirs of a forest ranger who was born and spent most of his life along the Klamath River, in the northeast corner of Humboldt County, in the Trinity Alps. This is the ancestral home of the Karuk ('upriver') tribe. Hotelling's family had lived in the area since the 1850s, when they arrived to search for gold. Hotelling was born in the region in 1898 and grew up among the Karuk Indians, learning some of their language and observing first-hand many ceremonies and rituals. The book is divided into four sections: Karuk culture, the arrival of white miners in the region, twentieth-century forestry, and the author's family history. The first three sections have significant information on Karuk culture, particularly during Hotelling's lifetime. The book is illustrated with more photographs of the Karuk people than any other book (although some appear to be Hupa, rather than Karuk). 120 pages. Over-sized paperback (8.5 x 11 inches). Illustrated with photographs. Quite scare and useful. OCLC locates six copies (and two photocopies). The later editions have slightly different content and photos. First edition (first printing). A near fine copy in wrappers (paperback). Library of Congress duplicate, with its ink stamps. Bookseller Inventory #
