Joaquin Miller’s ‘Life Amongst the Modocs’ is without question the most authoritative and important account of the lives and customs of the Modoc people. Modocs are a Native American Indian tribe who lived in California whose lands were invaded by American settlers at the height of the Gold Rush. By 1873, the Modoc stronghold in Northern California began to crumble as war with the U.S. Army all but crushed the Modoc hope for survival.

 

Miller’s account was published shortly after this event – he had lived with the tribe for more than four years, becoming well acquainted with their customs and traditions. This 1874 second edition is a valuable and important resource on westward expansion, gold rush, and Native American cultures.

According to the Zamorano 80,

“A curious account of Miller s life and experiences with the Indians of Northern California, largely devoted to his quixotic attempt to form an Indian republic among the Pit River Indians, the Klamaths, Shastas, and Modocs, and of his participation in the so-called Pit River Massacre.”
