Description

ISHI IN TWO WORLDS by Theodora Kroeber (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

“Ishi’s story is one of the most remarkable in the annals of Indians on this continent, and Mrs. Kroeber tells it with an integrity and insight that raises it to the level of history which is also art.” (Washington Post)

The story of Ishi, the last survivor of an exterminated Indian tribe, has captivated readers for more than forty years. Found nearly starving in the corral of a slaughterhouse in 1911, Ishi would live out the rest of his life under the care and protection of the University of California Museum of Anthropology.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones® Award-winning narrator, Lorna Raver. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“A sad tale that all Americans should read, because Ishi’s tragedy was repeated so many times in our history.” (P.J. Sullivan, GoodReads.com review)

_

The life story of Ishi, the last Yahi Indian, lone survivor of an exterminated tribe, is unique in the annals of North American anthropology. Ishi stumbled into the twentieth century on the morning of August 29, 1911, when, desperate with hunger and terrified of the white murderers of his family, he was found in the corral of a slaughterhouse near Oroville, California. Finally identified as a Yahi by an anthropologist, Ishi was brought to San Francisco by Professor T. T. Waterman and lived there the rest of his life under the care and protection of Alfred Kroeber and the staff of the University of California's Museum of Anthropology.
