    Ishi: America's Last Stone Age Indian (signed) by Richard L Burrill

    Sacramento: The Anthro Company, 1990. Stiff wraps. Near fine. A fine, signed copy in stiff paper wraps. 50 pp. Quarto, 8 1/2 x 11 inches tall. Ishi was the last member of the Yahi, a group of the Yana of the U.S. state of California. Widely acclaimed in his time as the "last wild Indian" in America, Ishi lived most of his life completely outside modern culture. At 50 years of age, in 1911, he emerged near the present-day foothills of the Sierra nevada in Oroville, Caifornia. Ishi means "man" in the Yana language. The anthropologist Alfred Kroeber gave this name to the man because in the Yahi culture, tradition demanded that he not speak his name or that of anyone who was dead. When asked his name, he said: "I have none, because there were no people to name me," meaning that no Yahi had ever spoken his name. He was taken in by anthropologists at the University of California, Berkeley, who both studied him and hired him as a research assistant. He lived most of his remaining five years in a university building in San Francisco. -- wikipedia
