"Mrs. Kroeber...tells [Ishi's story] with an integrity and insight that raises it to the level of history that is also art." (Washington Post)
"This magnificent biography...shows man at his best." (San Francisco Examiner)
"One of the most moving, tragic and ultimately triumphant human stories I have ever read.... " (Los Angeles Times)
this book could be down to about 1 chapter,, BUT the writer decides to explain everything in to much detail with references etc. it sounds like 1st grade story time with big words and their explanations. I could not finish it. I have a large collection of audio books. This one by far should win the "annoy an idiot" award. If you buy this book take nots to keep yourself in check as to what is really going on. because you will learn a word and its origins in the universe, how to use it and who used, what all books and languages its meanings mean, the time of day it was created and how not to use it when addressing the yard gnome on thursday at 3 pm when its raining. then one time at band camp I too used this word but my cousins uncles, neighbors, childhood friend of 3 years and his sisters mothers cousin with a goat that we all knew.
I actually tried to write this review as this book has been wrote. It is a great story but not this version. its to political and bias from the christian opinion of its authors.
I am sorry but my opinion is the its not staying in my library or on my ipod. I don't write bad reviews but this should have never passed publishing.. a true butchering of a Native HERO!
