Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most persistent enemy of the native Californians was the firmly rooted white philosophy which preached that, one way or another, the Indian was doomed. Beyond the callous references to "Diggers" and "Poor Lo, " the single most important catchword of the period was "extermination." It was used early and often and picked up by the newspapers and repeated in the army reports, letters, government documents, and journals of the time. It was a word that set the stage for slaughter.  When the Great Spirit Died is a sad and tragic story that will haunt our country forever.

Synopsis:

Exploring the destruction of the native Californians, this thorough history discusses the philosophies and language references such as ""Diggers"" and Poor Lo"" that eventually set the stage for the extermination of a group of people.
