Ishi, the Last Stone Age Indian of North America




(I recently completed my  20th trip to the Ishi Wilderness in Northern California.


All of my "adventures" are covered below, and you get to meet some of the wonderful friends I have made, and share some of the experiences I have had along the way.)


Ishi, the Last Stone Age Indian in North America, had a major influence on my life over the past few years...read about it here, and my trips to the foothills of the Cascade Mountains in Northern California . He was discovered in 1911 living a primitive life in northern California.
