Local historian Richard Burrill presents his newest book, Ishi’s Return Home: The 1914 Anthropological Expedition Story

The story begins in San Francisco with Ishi and Professor Alfred L. Kroeber. Ishi’s health, day-to-day coping skills, and acquisition of English are carefully followed during 1911, 1912, and 1913. 1914 includes the remarkable anthropological expedition back to Ishi’s ancestral territory.
