2 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
"Presents further research by Jed Riffe on Ishi, the last surviving member of the Yahi Native American tribe in northern California. "Ishi, the last Yahi" chronicles the unforgettable story of Ishi, the last survivor of the Yahi tribe following extensive massacres of Native Americans in California in the 1860s and 1870s. Ishi and a handful of his tribu refused to surrender, choosing instead to live in hiding. After 40 years and the death of all the others, one day in 1911, Ishi, alone and near starvation, walked out of the wilderness and into the white man's world. Newspapers labeled him "the last wild Indian", or "the last Stone Age Man in North America", to the public he was an exotic curiosity, but for young anthropologist Alfred Kroeber, Ishi's appearance was a scientific windfall... "Ishi, the last Yahi" skillfully blends haunting photographs, archival film footage, recordings Kroeber made of Ishi's voice, and illuminating commentary by authorities on native American cultures"
