California's Chumash Indians

I live in the small town of Carpinteria along the central coast of California. I enjoy reading about local history, so California's Chumash Indians fit the bill! California's Chumash Indians is 72 pages in length, which makes it a very quick read for those wanting to learn basic information about the lives of the Chumash Indians.

The following is a book description I found on the Amazon website:
The Chumash people have lived for centuries along the California coast between Malibu and San Luis Obispo. They were on hand to greet Cabrillo in 1542 and Gaspar de Portola in 1769. They coexisted with the Spanish communities of the Southern California Missions. And there are still about three thousand people of Chumash ancestry living in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo counties. Here, for the layman and the tourist, is a concise, entertaining, and informative view of a noble and important people: their history, their way of life, their arts, their beliefs and legends.
I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the Chumash Indians. I thought the content found in California's Chumash Indians was very informative and would highly recommend this book to other readers.
