    Excellent book, lots of history local to the Yakima, and surrounding areas. Book arrived in the exact shape described.

    For those that enjoy reading of the history of the Yakima, WA area this is a great read. Definitly a tough breed of folks living then.

    It is important to point out that this book, despite its title, is less than 1/4 on the life of Chief Ka-Mi-Akin. Most of the book is about the adventures of Mr. Splawn, who was mostly a cowboy and rancher. There are 'endless' accounts of cattle drives to British Columbia, Montana, Portland, etc. That isn't to say it isn't an interesting book. Mr. Splawn personally knew many of the important Indians - such as Ka-Mi-Akin and Chief Moses - and most of the first settlers to the Yakima area of Washington State. He gives a first-hand account of the Perkin's murders. He also tells about Rev. Wilbur, the anti-Catholic Indian agent who traveled all the way to Washington, D.C., to keep the priests from serving their converts, converts going back twenty years before Wilbur became the government's Indian agent. There is a lot of history here, and most of it is very interesting. But, don't expect to read 500 pages on the great Yakima chief - his story ends on page 130 [at least, in the 1944 edition of the 1917 book].

    Sorry. The title of this review is a little misleading. A.J.Splawn was one of the Pacific Northwest's best known and successful settlers. This book, first published in 1917 is an accurate accounting of Indian relations, both before and after the Treaty of 1855. Splawn documents over 50 years of raising cattle and living among Native Americans, chiefly those tribes in Eastern Oregon, Eastern Washington and Western Idaho. I have the 2nd edition, published in 1944, which incorporates Mr. Splawn's previously unpublished notes. The book is written in a modern hand. More than just a portrait of the great chief Kamiakin, it is a portal into a time when great schools of salmon still ran the Yakima and Naches Rivers, and Native Americans roamed freely throughout the basalt canyons and Ponderosa Pine hills of the Yakima Territory.
