Over 150 years ago Ishi, the last of the Yahi tribe, entered the modern world. 100 years later Theodora Kroeber wrote the seminal account of Ishi's fascinating life.
This 50th Anniversary Edition of Ishi in Two Worlds is considered the finest biography of Ishi, the last wild Indian in North America. A tragic and remarkable story, this book features historic photographs of Ishi, his archery gear, and the important people in the last few years of his life.
Includes a chapter on his hunting experiences with Saxton Pope and Art Young. This book also features photographs and diagrams showing Ishi's preferred archery stance and shooting style, and maps of the Yahi's ancestral lands.
