Mishopshno: A Novel of the Early Chumash

In the prehistoric Chumash Indian village of Mishopshno, life follows the rhythms of nature and cultural tradition.  Over the course of a year, members of the community hunt and fish, celebrate, mourn, gamble, woo, tell stories, and undertake a perilous trading trip to the off-shore islands.

In Mishopshno we relive an existence handed down through countless generations, coherent and intact, long before the arrival of Europeans, who changed that world forever.
