Through this lyrical and richly textured memoir we experience both the beauty and the struggles of Darryl Babe Wilson's journey through childhood. Born into the Achumawi and Atsugewi tribes (often called the Pit River Nation) of northeastern California, Wilson spent his early years with his family in a life rich in tradition, until tragic events forced him to learn to survive among the assimilation policies of the 1950s. In The Morning the Sun Went Down, Wilson infuses stories of youthful innocence and experience with his spiritual journey that echoes across generations.
