Abstract
  • It has generally been assumed by historians and anthropologists that the indigenous groups living to the west and northwest of the Colorado River were non-horticultural with three or four exceptions: some horticulture among the eastern-most Kamia, among the Chemehuevi who settled at a late date along the Colorado River, and among the Paiute of the Virgin River (considered by some to have been a Mormon-taught group); and the tobacco-planting of northwest California. A. L. Kroeber attempted to explain the absence of horticulture in much of California by asserting that native California failed to become agricultural because of its dry summers, for which, so far as maize was concerned, no amount of winter precipitation could compensate California today is not notably a corn-raising state.
