The four life histories that make up this catalog- the basis for the exhibit The Artists Behind the Work- have all sorts of things to offer the reader. They are fascinating stories about interesting people. They are Alaskan history up close, on an intimate and very local level during a period of tremendous change in this northern region. Based on oral history interviews, they are enlivened with the directness of first-hand experience and personal knowledge.

Ann Fienup-Riordan has lived and worked in Alaska since 1973. She has written and edited more than twenty books on Yup’ik history and oral traditions. Her most recent book with the University of Alaska Press is Yungcautnguuq Nunam Qainga Tamarmi/All the Land's Surface is Medicine: Edible and Medicinal Plants of Southwest Alaska.
