If you get the chance get the original printing. The books shows that Chief Tenaya was the founder of the Paiute Colony of Ahwahnee. That Tenaya spoke Paiute. Tenaya's children were Paiutes. That Tenaya's band was mainly Mono Lake Paiutes. That the Monos bragged about Chief Tenaya, while the Miwoks, now claiming to be Tenaya's people, were afraid of Chief Tenaya and much more. This book is the one and only book to read about the Indians of Yosemite. C. Hart Merriam and Kroeber spoke to Miwoks living in Mariposa and Sonora. Sadly they were the ones who helped James Savage and the Mariposa Battalion captured Chief Tenaya. This is all written in the one and only book written by the man who met and wrote about Chief Tenaya, Lafayette H. Bunnell.
