About Joaquin Miller, the Author:
As a young man, he moved to northern California during the California Gold Rush years, and had a variety of adventures, including spending a year living in a Native American village, and being wounded in a battle with Native Americans. ...9 About 1857, Miller supposedly married an Indian woman named Paquita (she may have been a Modoc Indian, and the relationship was probably that of a 'country wife') and lived in the McCloud River area of northern California; the couple had two children born in California or Oregon.
