A delightfully written fictional, but historically accurate account of life among the Kumeyaay Indians whose villages were in the mountains, foothills, and valleys of San Diego County among oak groves. In the first of two tales, a white boy is adopted into a band and must learn the ways of the Kumeyaay. In the second story, a young girl learns about the plants and animals from her “herbwoman” mother and finds the limitation of natural healing with the introduction of white man’s diseases.
