278 pages. "Trafzer has produced a remarkable work, a brilliant study, and the first ever examining mortality over time in any reservation. He provides a sophisticated analysis of the data, comparing Yakama Nation death rated, fetal deaths, and infant mortailty with those of whites, non-whites, African Americans, and the people of the state of Washington. He skillfully discusses gender and age variables, offering insightful interpretations based on the data and his detailed knowledge of Plateau Indians. This book is a powerful and masterful contribtion to social history, and will change the way we approach Native American history." FINE SOFTCOVER, signed by the author.

Clifford Trafzer's disturbing new work, Death Stalks the Yakama, examines life, death, and the shockingly high mortality rates that have persisted among the fourteen tribes and bands living on the Yakama Reservation in the state of Washington. The work contains a valuable discussion of Indian beliefs about spirits, traditional causes of death, mourning ceremonies, and memorials. More significant, however, is Trafzer's research into heretofore unused parturition and death records from 1888-1964. In these documents, he discovers critical evidence to demonstrate how and why many reservation people died in "epidemics" of pneumonia, tuberculosis, and heart disease. 
     Death Stalks the Yakama, takes into account many variables, including age, gender, listed causes of death, residence, and blood quantum. In addition, analyses of fetal and infant mortality rates as well as crude death rates arising from tuberculosis, pneumonia, heart disease, accidents, and other causes are presented. Trafzer argues that Native Americans living on the Yakama Reservation were, in fact, in jeopardy as a result of the "reservation system" itself. Not only did this alien and artificial culture radically alter traditional ways of life, but sanitation methods, housing, hospitals, public education, medicine, and medical personnel affiliated with the reservation system all proved inadequate, and each in its own way contributed significantly to high Yakama death rates.
