This expos reveals unique and tragic events that occurred north of San Francisco Bay in Northwestern California primarily during the Nineteenth Century. It details a clash between the indigenous inhabitants of the area who had lived here for several millennia and White invaders from the eastern portions of the United States attracted by reports of placer gold deposits found in selected waterways as well as by the presence of land where flora and fauna grew in unprecedented profusion from the heavy rainfall sufficient to support great stands of Redwood forests, the tallest trees on earth. For American ranchers and farmers subject to drought in many parts of the United States, Northwestern California sounded like a Garden marred only by the presence of hundreds of thousands of Native Americans who occupied this Eden. What followed was a war of brutality in the 1800s between two races for possession of land ownership, an updated story that has never been presented in such detail before. White migrants committed ethnocide and genocide in removing the natives while founding Humboldt, Trinity, Mendocino and Klamath counties. This work takes the form of an historical novel blending fact with a modicum of fiction for readability.

Book Summary After the bloody battle of Culloden Moor in the 18th century; a brave Scotsman known as Henry Leith left Scotland to travel to the colony of America. After marrying a Southern Belle from Virginia they moved to South Carolina to start a family. Only to have their son captured by the Indians. The Indians adopted him, and raised him for 16 years to become their leader and chief. George Washington’s Military Commanders hired John Leith to be an Indian interpreter to help him during the Revolutionary war in the Northwest territory, before it became the state of Ohio. As a member of the Leith Clan bloodline, and an ancestor of the Castle of Leith Hall. I can tell John Leith’s original authenticated story, and proud to be one of the last direct descendents of his family!
