Description
Fairly extensive marshes occur along the shores of Klamath lake, and Klamath marsh covers about a hundred square miles. These areas are the resort of innumerable waterfowl, which were of great importance to the aboriginal Klamath, and thousands of acres were a mass of water-lilies, which yielded in abundance an edible seed.
