Episode Info:

Today we conclude Life Amongst The Modocs by Joaquin Miller. In our last program the final battle between the Indians and the soldiers took place. Miller leaves the area rather than provide an excuse for the soldiers to make further attacks. A dozen years go by before he returns. Old mule trails have been replaced by roads for stagecoaches. He sees few Indians he knows. We learn why the Pit River Indians had that name. He visits the last enclave of the Shasta Indians up on the mountain. Some Indians under Captain Jack held out for their lands and put up a good fight before being killed. We are introduced to young Calle Shasta who has a pet bear. There is speculation she is Miller’s daughter. He visits the Doctor and asks why he hadn’t been taken in on a secret. The Prince comes back from his exploits in South America and the two of them live together in bucolic splendor. But the world calls so it doesn’t last.
