    This book contains a wealth of information about the Kumeyaay also known as the DiegueƱo people the original inhabitants of the area around what is now San Diego It is not very strong on plot but of an overview of what daily life throughout the year looked like before the area was overrun by white people It was originally published in 1937 The author is a white woman who spent a significant amount of time among the Kumeyaay writing down their customs and traditions including food medicine and religion One of the things that made me slightly uncomfortable was the constant comparison of the Kumeyaay to animalsThere are two separate novellas in this book The first one tells the story of a white boy whose parents die He is taken in and raised by the Kumeyaay The second story is about the daughter of the herbwoman and we learn a variety of medicinal uses of plants along with her Both stories end really abruptly Both novellas also include traditional legends as wellThis book is a great way to learn about Native Californians I wish there had been a bit plot to keep the reader engaged Recommended for grades 4 up

    Originally published in 1937 Melicent wrote these stories to preserve the culture of the Kumeyaay Indians of southern California She came to know the remnant of their people after moving to San Diego She learned their crafts and stories and helped preserve them by promoting activities through what became the Museum of Man The first set of stories is told from the perspective of a white boy who is rescued by the tribe He lives with them for a year learning the ways of hunting and using what the desert supplies The second set involves an herb woman and her baby Wahss who grows up to learn both the Indian and white ways of medicine based on the dedication an actual person Lee knew

    Slow paced But very good historical fiction It provides good vocabulary and description of life for the Kumeyaay I couldn't find information better than this for my third grade class other than a field trip to the Museum of Man

    I read this book back in the third grade when we were being taught local Native American history I don't remember much about this book besides that the protagonist was amongst Indians It was a great book even though I don't remember it
