Included in the San Francisco Chronicle's Top 100 Non-fiction books of the century

Two hundred years ago, herds of elk and antelope dotted the hills of the San Francisco-Monterey Bay area. Grizzly bears lumbered down to the creeks to fish for silver salmon and steelhead trout. From vast marshlands geese, ducks, and other birds rose in thick clouds "with a sound like that of a hurricane." This land of "inexpressible fertility," as one early explorer described it, supported one of the densest Indian populations in all of North America.

One of the most ground-breaking and highly-acclaimed titles that Heyday has published, _The Ohlone Way _ describes the culture of the Indian people who inhabited Bay Areas prior to the arrival of Europeans. Recently included in the San Francisco Chronicle's "Top 100 Western Non-Fiction" list, _The Ohlone Way_ has been described by critic Pat Holt as a "mini-classic."
