Robert A. McKennan (1903-1982) spent 1929 to 1933 in several remote Native villages where he documented Interior Athabaskan life. His writings are an extraordinary window onto Athabaskan culture before World War II and form a significant part of anthropology's humanistic tradition.

Editors Mishler and Simeone have annotated McKennan's journals and provided a wealth of contextual material in two substantive introductory chapters. Readers will appreciate this rare perspective on a vanishing way of life.

 
Craig Mishler has been doing field work on Alaskan folklore and anthropology since 1972. He received his doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin in 1981 and is an affiliate associate professor of anthropology at the University of Alaska, Anchorage.
