Rating: 4 out of 5 stars - A rare find
There are not many books out there that are specific to southern California tribes. This is a great find about the Cahuilla group. Lowell Bean has done excellent research (as well he should, he's very familiar with CA Indians) and added a much needed book to my California reference library. This book gives a great overview of the Cahuilla people. He covers aspects such as every day cultural practices (cooking, building living spaces, making pottery), their creation story, wilderness management, movement of the groups and of course impacts on their lifeways from the rancherias and European migration.
