Ishi: The Greatest Californian! With Guest Harmony McElligott

about 1 year ago

Perhaps the greatest way to describe, "the greatest Californian," is with his doctor's words, "... He closes a chapter of history. He looked upon us as sophisticated children—smart, but not wise.… His soul was that of a child, his mind that of a philosopher.” Ishi's story is a tale of the past meeting the present; a paragon of how we must first look back before we can move forward.
