Plumas County author, Elisa Adler, weaves together the stories told to her by members of several local Native American families, including the Davis, Joseph, and Cunningham families. They tell of the 16 year-old Welsh boy, John Davies, who in 1863 walks over the ridge looking for gold and finds and marries Mary Yatkin, the Maidu headman's daughter. They tell how from that union generations of family grew and still grow - ranchers, basket weavers, loggers, mill-workers, healers, thinkers, and teachers who plant orchards in the valley coves, raise animals, barns and children whom they teach to be careful and to care for the ever-present spirits who inhabit that world. Paperbound: 442 pages: 5.5 x 8.5"
