When Ishi, "the last wild Indian," came out of hiding in August 1911, he was quickly whisked away by train to San Francisco to meet Alfred Kroeber, one of the fathers of American anthropology. When Kroeber and Ishi came face to face, it was a momentous event, not only for each man but also for the cultures they represented. Each stood on the brink--one was in danger of losing something vital while the other was in danger of disappearing altogether. Ishi was a survivor, and he viewed the bright lights of the big city with a mixture of awe and bemusement. What surprised everyone is how handily he adapted himself to the modern city while maintaining his sense of self and his culture. Kroeber was professionally trained to document Ishi's culture and his civilization. What he didn't count on was how deeply working with the man would lead him to question his own profession and his civilization--how it would rekindle a wildness of his own. Although Ishi's story has been told before in film and fiction, Wild Men is the first book to focus on the depth of Ishi and Kroeber's friendship. Exploring what their intertwined stories tell us about Indian survival in modern America and about America's fascination with the wild, this text is an ideal supplement for courses on Native American history, the U.S. West, and the history of California.

Πριν από δέκα χρόνια ο Όλεθρος ήρθε στον κόσμο. Εμφανίστηκε σαν μια εκτυφλωτική λάμψη στον ουρανό και χάρισε υπεράνθρωπες δυνάμεις σε μια πλειάδα καθημερινών ανθρώπων. Πλημμυρισμένος από φόβο και δέος, ο υπόλοιπος κόσμος άρχισε να αποκαλεί τους ανθρώπους αυτούς Επικούς. Οι Επικοί, όμως, δεν είναι φιλικά διακείμενοι προς την ανθρωπότητα. Μαζί με τις απίστευτες ικανότητές τους απέκτησαν και το πάθος της εξουσίας και η απόλυτη εξουσία προϋποθέτει τη συντριβή του ελεύθερου ανθρώπινου πνεύματος. Στις μέρες μας, στο σημείο όπου κάποτε βρισκόταν η πόλη του Σικάγο, ο πανίσχυρος Επικός που είναι γνωστός ως Ατσαλόκαρδος κυβερνά ως τύραννος, προικισμένος με απίστευτη φυσική δύναμη και την ικανότητα να ελέγχει τα στοιχεία της φύσης. Οι φήμες λένε πως οι σφαίρες δεν μπορούν να τον βλάψουν, πως καμιά λεπίδα δεν μπορεί να τον πληγώσει, πως η φωτιά δεν τον αγγίζει... Είναι άτρωτος, ανίκητος. Κανείς δεν τολμά να του αντισταθεί. Κανείς… εκτός από τους Τιμωρούς. Οι Τιμωροί είναι μια μυστηριώδης ομάδα απλών ανθρώπων που έχουν αφιερώσει τη ζωή τους στη μελέτη των Επικών. Σκοπός τους είναι να ανακαλύψουν τα αδύνατα σημεία τους και να καταφέρουν κάποτε να τους αφανίσουν. Ο νεαρός Ντέιβιντ θέλει όσο τίποτα στον κόσμο να γίνει μέλος των Τιμωρών. Λίγο μετά την άφιξή του στο Σικάγο, ο Ατσαλόκαρδος δολοφόνησε τον πατέρα του Ντέιβιντ. Όπως ακριβώς και οι Τιμωροί, ο Ντέιβιντ μελετά εδώ και χρόνια τους Επικούς, καταστρώνοντας σχέδια για την εξάλειψή τους. Το μεγάλο του όπλο στην προσπάθεια αυτή, όμως, δεν είναι κάποιο αντικείμενο αλλά μια ανάμνηση, που οι Τιμωροί έχουν ανάγκη για να εκπληρώσουν την αποστολή τους. Έχει δει τον Ατσαλόκαρδο να ματώνει. Κι η καρδιά του διψά για εκδίκηση.
