Abstract: This book presents in detail the history of the Klamath people from the first, more intense contacts with white people during the first half of the 19th century until the termination of the reservation in 1954. During the long reservation period the tribe failed to form a politically effective unit. Factions based upon kin grouping and presenting different degrees of acculturation, as well as disinterest in political activity by part of the tribe, seem to have been responsible for this situation. Stern claims that with the reservation coming to an end, the Klamath tribe has also come to an end. However, with the termination of the reservation the Klamath became more and more interested in the pan-Indian movement.
