AUTHOR

Orin Starn

SUMMARY

AFTER THE YAHI were massacred in the mid-nineteenth century, Ishi survived alone for decades in the mountains of northern California, wearing skins and hunting with bow and arrow. His capture in 1911 made him a national sensation; anthropologist Alfred Kroeber declared him the world's most "uncivilized" man and made Ishi a living exhibit in his museum. Thousands came to see the displaced Indian before his death, of tuberculosis. "Ishi's Brain follows Orin Starn's gripping quest for the remains of the last of the Yahi. From the mountains of California to a forgotten steel vat at the Smithsonian, this "eloquent and soul-searching book" ("Lit) is "a compelling . . . account of one of American anthropology' s strangest, saddest chapters" ("Archaeology).Orin Starn is the author of 'Ishi's Brain: In Search of Americas Last "Wild" Indian', published 2005 under ISBN 9780393326987 and ISBN 0393326985.
