William Bauer (History) published a book, California Through Native Eyes: Reclaiming History (University of Washington Press). Using oral histories of Concow, Pomo, and Paiute workers, taken as part of a New Deal federal works project, Bauer reveals how Native peoples have experienced and interpreted the history of the land we now call California. Combining these oral histories with creation myths and other oral traditions, he demonstrates the importance of sacred landscapes and animals and other non-human actors to the formation of place and identity.
