Murder State is a comprehensive examination of these events and their early legacy. Preconceptions about Native Americans as shaped by the popular press and by immigrants' experiences on the Overland Trail to California were used to further justify the elimination of Native people in the newcomers' quest for land. The allegedly "violent nature" of Native people was often merely their reaction to the atrocities committed against them as they were driven from their ancestral lands and alienated from their traditional resources. Murder State calls attention to the misuse of democracy to justify and commit genocide.

History of Native American Genocide in California
Although repetitious at times the book gives both a broad and deep history of the genocide of Native Americans in California. Very disturbing but very important information to know about US history.

Wow! A history to never repeat.
It is really a phenomenal that this history is so we'll documented but then never acknowledged by the general public.
