Two Peoples, One Place
Humboldt History, Volume One
Ray Raphael & Freeman House
Everywhere in America, in history, two cultures collided, but few points of conflict were as sudden, or as well documented, as in northwestern California at the time of the Gold Rush. In this fascinating account by two acclaimed and accomplished authors, the local story becomes general. From close up, the reader views what happened when Euro-Americans and Native Americans competed for a place they both relished.
This book includes a detailed account of Humboldt's native peoples before European contact, plus their contact with Spaniards in 1775 and early mountain men in the first half of the nineteenth century. Most of the book covers the first 32 years after the Gold Rush, when much was in turmoil.
"A community history that ranks with some of the best published during the last 40 years.... While [Raphael's] focus is Humboldt County, his findings have much wider implications, as well as being a fascinating account for the popular reader."
