As told by Michael Hittman. This is a book about the forty-four years my father has spent as a veterinarian. The book begins with his life growing up on a Nebraska farm and describes how he decided to become a veterinarian. I detail some of the most memorable times in his life, such as serving as a veterinarian in the Air Force and starting out in private practice. Readers will be introduced to some of the characters he has. met along the way - both human and animal - and to controversies in the ever-changing world of veterinary medicine.

Corbett Mack (1892-1974) was a Northern Paiute of mixed ancestry, caught between the Native American and white worlds. A generation before, his tribe had brought forth the prophet Wovoka, whose Ghost Dance swept the Indian world in the 1890s. Mack™s world was a harsh and bitter place after the last Native American uprisings had been brutally crushed, a life of servitude to white farmers and addiction to opium.

The Life of a Northern Paiute. A book as long in the making as this requires many acknowledgments. Field-work in Yerington was originally funded by National Science Foundation grants: the Field Training Program in Anthropology, (Department of Anthropology, University of Nevada, 1965) and a Grant Supporting Doctoral Dissertation Work (GS-2007) in 1969. IN 1992 I received a grant from the Nevada Humanities Committee of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NHC 87–33), and I thank its executive director, Judy Winzeler, for support and friendship.

This is the compelling yet disturbing story of Corbett Mack (1892–1974), an opiate addict who was a member of the Nuumuu (Numa), or Northern Paiute. The Northern Paiute are best known as the people who produced Wovoka, the Ghost Dance prophet whose revitalistic teachings swept the Indian world in the 1890s. Mack is from the generation following the collapse of the Ghost Dance religion, a generation of Nomogweta or “half-breeds” (also called “stolen children”)—Paiute of mixed ancestry who were raised in an increasingly bicultural world and who fell into virtual peonage to white (often Italian) potato farmers.

Around the turn of the century, the use of opium became widespread among the Paiute, adopted from equally victimized Chinese laborers with whom they worked closely in the fields. The story of Corbett Mack is an uncompromising account of a harsh and sometimes traumatic life that was typical of an entire generation of Paiute. It was a life born out of the turmoil and humiliation of an Indian boarding school, troubled by opiate addiction, bound to constant labor in the fields, yet nonetheless made meaningful through the perseverance of Paiute cultural traditions.

An amazing story that highlights the Pauite Indian and illegal drug communities in Northern Nevada in the early 20th century. The subject is a real character. I really enjoyed this book.

This book is a hard book to capture your attention, but when it does, it is a fascinating book to read.

If you want to understand the plight of the Piaute people, this is a must read! It is the quintessential book on the subject.

This is the story of Corbett Mack, a "Stolen Child" (half blood) of the Northern Paiute of the late 1800's. It tells the story in his own words of what it was like to be unaccepted in the white world nor the Indian world. The plight of the Notrhern Paiute after the arrival of the whiteman. He became an alcohol and opiate addict, and lead a tragic life that was somewhat typical of Native Americans during that time.
Judging the book by it's title I had hoped it was about the life of the Northern Paiute prior to white man's arrival. A good book for this purpose is "Indians of The Plateau and Great Basin" by Victoria Sherrow.
