For further reading into the history of Round Valley and the genocide of California Natives, we recommend:
- "The Destruction of California Indians" by Robert Heizer (University of Nebraska, 1974)
Important source of letters, newspaper accounts, and legislation documenting the genocide of native peoples. Any other books by Heizer, especially "The Other Californians" are also highly recommended.
- "Genocide and Vendetta" by Lynwood Carranco and Estle Beard (University of Oklahoma, 1981)
While the worst atrocities committed by whites were in the Eastern and far Northern parts of California, this documents some of the vigilante activity in the Mendocino-Humbolt region and a provides a full account of the early days at Round Valley Reservation.
- "The Round Valley Indians of California" by Amelia Susman (Berkeley, 1976)
Columbia University student Susman visited the reservation and Covelo in 1937, and found a troubled, segregated community. Recommended, but very academic reading.
- "The Impact of Euro-American Exploration and Settlement" by Edward Castillo (Handbook of North American Indians Vol. 8)
Overview of conflicts between all Northern California people and Europeans, from first contact to the present. Academic reading.
