Matthew S. Makley, Michael J. Makley. Cave Rock : climbers, courts, and a Washoe Indian sacred place. University of Nevada Press, c2010.

KF229.A28M35 2010

 

This book follows the lengthy dispute between the Washoe Indians and a number of athletes who turned a Washoe sacred pace into a world-class rock-climbing site, explaining how it ultimately resulted in a climbing ban. The authors discuss how the courtís ruling was both unprecedented and highly significant given the two centuries of judicial decisions allowing federal control, economic development, or public interests to outweigh Indian claims to their sacred places.
