About this title


Francesca Fryer explores the historic Indian-White Encounter on California's isolated north-coast, and discovers a strange and powerful story, which weaves the integral meaning of myth, river, redwood and salmon. Ultimately,she comes to the understanding that it is her story as well. This is a passionate tale of the lower Klamath River, recording the voice and spirit of witnesses and participants, such as Yurok Robert Spott and Florence Shaughnessy, and non-Indian Harry Roberts.

About the Author:

With an MA in history from UCLA, by 1964 Francesca Fryer moved to inland Redding. With the Northern California Indian-White Encounter as her subject, on a family fishing trip she discovered her theme and symbol: the everchanging finger of sand at the mouth of the Klamath River, reaching out first from one side, then the other - an intersection of two races, two cultures - striving to cross barriers, and never quite succeeding.

By 1974, after a divorce, a move to four rural acres, and a diagnosis of Freidrich's Ataxia, a slowly disabling neuro-muscular disease, her Sandspit trilogy began to take shape. A multi-layered non-fiction novel, its order not temporal, but a gradually widening view; its purpose to honor original voices and myths. At no point does the author fictionalize. She is the outside researcher taking the reader on an important voyage of discovery and in the process discovering herself.
