The haunting true story of the sole survivor of a lost civilization..."A window through which we can experience the spiritual symmetries of the Indian way."

In the early 1900s, a small band of California Indians of the Yahi tribe resisted the fate that had all but wiped out their people - violent death at the hands of the invading white man. Throughtout their ordeal and their final realization that they could survive only by becoming a hidden people, this tiny group held to the gentle moral and religious code of their ancestors. In time, one by one of the tribe died, until there remained a single survivor - the man who became known as Ishi.
