This is a classic work by a classic theorist. The information presented is some the the best and only scientifically collected evidence on many of these tribes who disappeared after this seminal work was written. For a student of American anthropology and archaeology, this work is a must read, and an invaluable resource for the closest personal account of many of these long since passed peoples. I personally have used this book as a reference for nearly every paper I have written as an undergraduate and grad student in anthropology and archaeology. This book sets the standard for California ethnography.
