The book, Genocide and Vendetta: The Round Valley Wars of Northern California (University of Oklahoma Press, 1981), unpacks one of the darkest chapters in California history: the literal genocide (“a war of extermination” as the first governor of California, Peter Hardeman Burnett, enthusiastically phrased it in 1851) of Native Americans by European Americans in Round Valley, CA, in Mendocino County. This history is mostly hidden (as most of these histories are) but its exposure is owed to the people who've inherited it, whether directly or indirectly.

These pages are part of a project to try to bring this book back from an early grave. It was arguably put there by disfunctional copyright law and an overabundance of caution on the part of the publisher.
