Cover of book To the American Indian
Categories: Nonfiction

Reminiscences of a Yurok woman is the autobiographical narrative of a pure-blooded aristocrat of the Yurok Indians, and one of the few firsthand accounts of Native American life and culture written by


a female. Lucy Thompson is one of the few Native American women who has written a book about her people. Lucy didn’t present her book to journalists or anthropologists – she just wrote her own story out of concern for the survival of her people and her customs, and worry that their story would not be told. Lucy Thompson gives readers a unique insider's view of a great culture. "To the American Indian" offers an incriminating and timeless portrait of Yurok life in the 19th century that only a firsthand viewpoint can provide.
