Overview

These stories come from the Wintu Indians of California's northern Sacramento Valley where they resided for thousands of years. Grant Towendolly, son of the former headman of the tribe, a Wintu philosopher , mystic, and shaman, retells their legends. We learn that streams, rocks, trees, canyons, cliffs, and ordinary scenery to us, often held special significance. On the side of a trail on Salt Creek is a large balanced rock called "a bag of bones" in which it is said deer bones could be heard rattling around inside.
