About this product
- DescriptionThe great expanse of Arctic and Sub-Arctic lands that stretch across the rthern edge of the American continent is as diffi cult and demanding to human beings as any in the world. Th e Athapaskan-speaking Indians who made it their home never captured the imagination of popular writers as did the Eskimo who lived on their rthern borders and the Plains Indians who lived to the south. Except to anthropologists, the Athapaskans have remained in relative obscurity, kwn intimately only to the missionaries, the traders and trappers, and the prospectors who invaded their forbidding territory.
- Author BiographyJames W. VanStone was curator emeritus of North American Archaeology and Ethnology and chairman of the department of anthropology at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. He is the author of numerous books and articles including Point Hope: An Eskimo Village in Transition, Kijik: An Historic Tanaina Indian Settlement, and Eskimos of the Nushagak River: An Ethnographic History.
