In Case You Missed It: "Writing & Reporting Nowhere into Somewhere"
Here's the recording of the book reading and discussion I did with author Ray March and Univ. of Nebraska editor Matthew Bokovoy on May 18, 2021 via Francie & Finch Bookshop in Lincoln, NE. My Modoc War covers an obscure Indian conflict in the remote northeastern corner of frontier California, yet this little-told story illuminates the shameful treatment of Native Americans across the United States and the horror of the California genocide. Set against much the same geographical backdrop, Ray March's Mass Murder in California's Empty Quarter details the all-too-common collision of greed, tribal disenrollment, and violence on the reservation.
