LOCATION 50 | The Modoc War: A Homeland Lost
On Old Malin Highway
You should now be on the Old Malin Highway. We'll be on this road for a bit, taking a few jogs along it - that feel more like 90 degree turns because the road follows ranching property lines. But we're traveling this route because it follows the same warpath Hooker Jim's gang took around the old eastern border of Tulelake.
One other thing I'd like to point out about Hooker Jim and many of the Modocs that I think most people don't realize. Most of them were exceptionally young. My great-grandfather was only about twenty two. And Hooker Jim was a mere twenty-one as he led this rampage.
