Originally published in 1937, Melicent wrote these stories to preserve the culture of the Kumeyaay Indians of southern California. She came to know the remnant of their people after moving to San Diego. She learned their crafts and stories and helped preserve them by promoting activities through what became the Museum of Man. The first set of stories is told from the perspective of a white boy who is rescued by the tribe. He lives with them for a year, learning the ways of hunting and using what the desert supplies. The second set involves an herb woman and her baby, Wahss, who grows up to learn both the Indian and white ways of medicine (based on the dedication, an actual person Lee knew.) ( )
