Description

Between 1846 and 1873, California’s Indian population plunged from around 150,000 to 30,000. This groundbreaking and award-winning book uncovers the full extent of the slaughter, the involvement of
state and federal officials, the taxpayer dollars that supported the violence, indigenous resistance, who did the killing, and why the killings ended. This deeply researched book is a comprehensive and chilling history of an American genocide.
