TREASURES FROM NATIVE CALIFORNIA: THE LEGACY OF RUSSIAN EXPLORATION. Travis Hudson and Craig D. Bates. Left Coast Press, Inc., Walnut Creek, 2015. 232 pp. with 137 ills. (72 col.). 29 x 22 cm. LC 2014-26772 ISBN 9781611329827 In English.
Publisher's description: The brief Russian presence in California yielded some of the earliest ethnography of Native Californians and some of the best collections of their material culture. Unstudied by western scholars because of their being housed in Russian museums, they are presented here for the first time in an English language volume. Descriptions of early nineteenth-century travelers such as von Wrangel and Voznesenskii are followed by a catalog of objects ranging from hunting weapons to household objects to ritual dress to musical instruments, games, and gift objects. An essential volume for those interested in the ethnology, archaeology, art, and cultures of Native Californians.
