Book Excerpt: 
. . .a few willing friends, who, armed with rifles, appeared suddenly among some Indian families while most of the men were many miles off, peaceably at work at Savage’s, without dreaming of danger, and without justifiable provocation the white men fired upon the families, killing two women, as it is stated, and some children, and wounding several others.

I loved this book! Checked it out for my annual camping trip in Yosemite Valley, and read it between hikes and campfires. The human history of the Valley is a subject every visitor to the area should dive into - Jim Savage, Chief Tenaya, Lafayette Bunnell - the region is absolutely steeped in histor

Great read, both as history and as artifact. Originally published in 1932 but updated several times, it is interesting how the "present day" feels, in context. Lots of interesting material on Savage, and the Mariposa "Battalion", as well as some history of Mt. Conness in the mapping of the region.

3.5 stars. Very informative and a good read.
