Annotation In 1911, Ishi, the lone survivor of the Yahi people, was found outside of a slaughterhouse in Oroville, California. Starving, exhausted, and speaking no English, Ishi had abandoned his tribal home in the foothills in the Sierra Nevada to survive. This is an account of his life - before he was found, and afterward, where he lived out the rest of his life in a museum, under the guardianship of an anthropologist. Californiana Collection.
