Names reprint, volume V, number 3 with review of Drummers and Dreamers.
"Recounted in this book is the story of a remnant band of non-treaty Indians, the Wanapums, who, when dispossessed of their homelands along the banks of the Columbia River in south central Washington, put up a long but futile struggle for survival. As the Columbia basin was settled in the course of the nineteenth century, the Wanapums were forced to retreat before the onrush of westward expansion. The book takes its title from the names often given to the several shamanistic prophets and preachers who, arising from time to time among the various tribes of the region, called upon their tribesmen to resist the encroachment of the white man. Among the last and most effective of such shamans in the Pacific Northwest was Smowhala the Dreamer (ca. 1820-1895), who admonished the Wanapums and their brethren not to abandon the wisdom of their forefathers for the ways of the intruder, teaching that the highest form of wisdom came only from following the precepts and practices of the Dreamer religion."
