Description
This monograph is a representative work of Alfred L. Kroeber's contributions to American Indian ethnology. It also illustrates why Kroeber, a noted American anthropologist and founder of the anthropology department at the University of California at Berkeley, is considered to be the father of California Indian studies. Kroeber's handbook provides a comprehensive look at the Indians of California and offers a foundation for the ethnographic study of California's Native American cultures.
