another one of the fourth grade books that kind of changed my experience as a reader (all my teachers throughout my school career - with the exception of the bastard that taught first year english - had us reading things that were really quite complicated for our age level). in california, fourth graders at most schools do california history. at a catholic school, that means mission projects, but for everyone, i think, it means studying the indians. so for our unit, we got to read ishi. the story should be pretty obvious from the title. the things i remember most about it were a) the sex scene (which was recreated in the movie we watched after finishing the book) b) how sad it was, and c) how long it was. i categorize it as historical fiction, because it isn't a true biography (though, i suppose, what is?) and because it's more the idea of ishi that drives the book, rather than ishi himself. but yeah, actually really depressing.
Followed pretty close the the TV Show. You have to love Q, still one of the best characters.
