PART III. THE CALIFORNIA INTO WHICH ISHI WAS BORN
PART IV. ISHI’S YOUTH, AGES ONE TO THIRTEEN YEARS, 1854-1867
PART V. THE INDIANS’ MURDER OF HARMON “HI” AUGUSTUS GOOD
PART VI. ISHI’S ADULT YEARS DURING THE LONG CONCEALMENT, 1870-1908

This work begins with Ishi’s parents’ generation, details Ishi’s birth (in about 1854), his youth, his coming of age, and most of his adult life, up to November 6, 1908, when Grizzly Bear’s Hiding Place was discovered, sacked, the encampment’s last four residents dispersed, and the Yahi’s long concealment abruptly ended. This book stands alone to Ishi’s Untold Story In His First World: A Biography Of The Last Of His Band Of Yahi Indians In North America, PARTS I & II which were separately introduced in 2011.

“Ishi is the gift who keeps on giving,” said Ishi Seminar participant Grayson Sorrels. By the time Ishi was born, in about 1854, most of California’s native cultures had been either fractured, displaced, or completely decimated by the California Gold Rush invasion. During the near genocide, Ishi lent a face and a name, and the Yahi remained an unconquered nation longer than Geronimo’s band of Apaches.
