Noticias de Nutka, second edition

An Account of Nootka Sound in 1792

This volume, long out of print, is now reissued in a new edition with the approval and support of the hereditary chiefs and elders of the Mowachaht, one of the Nuu-chah-nulth tribes. Included are Mozino's catalog of flora and fauna, his dictionary of the Nootka language, and reproductions of the drawings made by Atanasio Echeverria, the artists who accompanied the expedition.

Reviews

"Mozino was official 'botanist—naturalist' on an expedition of Juan Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra, sent to investigate the Spanish 'Limits to the North of California' in 1792 and to represent his nation in a vital confrontation with the English. Nootka Sound, a sheltered inlet on Vancouver Island, was the focal point of this excitement...Jose Mariano Mozino, an able scientist, Mexican born and educated, busied himself with a thorough investigation of the land and its people. WIth the aid of his assistants, he was the first to make an in—depth study of the language, customs, religion, and system of government of this region, and learned more about the way of life of these people than had anyone else...Dr Wilson's...translation and notes are excellent, the numerous illustrations superb. In all, this is a beautiful book."—American West

"A book that should be in the library of every American ethnologist and archaeologist."—The Masterkey
