California Indians and Their Environment
This major new introduction tells how the California Indians interacted with the state's varied landscape, enhancing its already bountiful natural resources through various practices centered around prescribed burning. A handy reference section, illustrated with more than one hundred color photographs, describes the plants, animals, and minerals that the California Indians used for food, basketry and cordage, medicine, and more.
