About the Book
During the many years of pre-statehood Alaska, the local Native populations struggled to adapt to several cultures. First contacts with the Russian fur hunters began what was to become a slow erosion of ancient ways of living.

When the Americans purchased the Great Land in 1867, another invasion of trappers,gold seekers,salmon fishers, hand loggers and missionaries overwhelmed the Native villages in even the most remote areas.

The Native Alaskans were forced to accomodate the invaders and accept with releuctance,their religion, manners, mores and lifestyles.

The stories in this collection tell of the many adaptations and compromises made by the residents of one island. Some are humerous, some pathetic; some failed and some were successful, but all are true reflections of the way white culture changed the lives of thousands of Alaskan Natives and how these stalwart and stubborn Native peoples survived.
