Promotional Statements

  • “The story of Ishi, as related in Unvanquished: Ishi’s Story is
    a tale of the old West which speaks to the modern world. It is
    a drama which resonates on many levels. No one addresses the
    topic of Ishi with the same enthusiasm, and devotion, as does
    Richard Burrill.

      --Paul Bowman, Ethnohistorian Dec. 6, 2022

    once again, as I see it, Richard Burrill breathes new life into
    a nearly forgotten history.”

  •  “Ishi is the gift who keeps on giving,”
