Indian Survival on the California Frontier

Indian Survival on the California Frontier

by Albert L. Hurtado
English | 1988 | ISBN: 0300047983 | 271 Pages | PDF | 9 MB

During the middle decades of the nineteenth century, when vast numbers of whites poured into California, the native Indian population was decimated through disease, starvation, homicide, and a declining birth rate. In this prize-winning book, Albert L. Hurtado focuses on the Indians who survived this harrowing time. Hurtado considers the ways in which native life and culture persisted, how the survivors integrated their lives with white society, and how the now-dominant whites related to the Indians living and working with them.

"Anyone interested in California Indians should read this book." - William Bright, Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Hurtado takes a fresh look at the role Native Americans played in shaping frontier California. The Indians emerge from this study not merely as victims of white rapaciousness but as an active historical influence, serving as both a resistance force to white incursion and as prime shapers of the agricultural work force." - Booklist

"A wide-ranging and imaginative discussion of significant issues that are at the very center of scholarship on western settlement during the nineteenth century." - Roger Nichols, University of Arizona
