Flaptekst van het boek met verhalen over California

For thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans, the territory we now know as California was inhabited and cared for by Indigenous people. After centuries of land grabs, genocide and environmental devastation, a movement calling for a return of the land to its legitimate custodians is finally achieving its first concrete results.

What Does It Mean to Be a Solution? by Vanessa Hua
The Asian-American community is fighting back against its imprisonment in a rigid stereotype that sees them only as taciturn, hard-working people incapable of relating to others. At the forefront of this is a new generation of writers whose literary creations are finally reflecting a more multifaceted image.

Shadows in the Valley by Francisco Cantú
For millions of Americans, Yosemite National Park represents an ideal of unsullied nature, an image perpetuated through family stories and the nation’s epic narratives. But to ignore the history of violence and genocide behind the park’s creation, we risk doing wrong not only to the victims but also to ourselves, because in taking this approach we are denied the chance to understand a place linked as much to human history as it is to its rocks and its waterfalls.
