Jeff C. Riddle wrote Indian History of the Modoc War and the Causes That Led To It as a boyhood eyewitness to the tragedy in Northern California.

Riddle’s account of the 1873 Modoc War, based on his memories, and upon interviews and personal acquaintance with Native American participants takes other historians, notably white historians, to task for misrepresenting the Modocs and Kei-in-to-poses, or Captain Jack. He gives detailed accounts of the killing of Union General E. R. S. Canby at the Lava Beds near Tule Lake, California.

Riddle also does greater justice to Modoc women than other historians, particularly through his biographical accounts of his mother, Wi-ne-ma.

This scarce copy is a “true” first edition, bound with red cardboard boards, and re-spined with red archival tape. Inscribed and signed by the author, “This is the first edition of this book / Jeff C. Riddle.”

Jeff C. INDIAN HISTORY OF THE MODOC WAR AND THE CAUSES THAT LED TO IT. N.P.: (1914). 1st edition, 295p., illustrations.
