One of Alaska's premier ethnographers, Robert A. McKennan (1903-1982) spent the years between 1929 and 1933 in several remote Native villages where he documented Interior Athabaskan life in a series of books and journals. McKennan's journals are an extraordinary window onto Athabaskan culture before it was radically transformed by social changes following World War II. While McKennan's two major ethnographies - on the Tanana and the Gwich'in (Kutchin) - represent the scientific aspects of his work, his voluminous letters and journals form an equally significant part of anthropology's humanistic tradition. McKennan chronicles his day-to-day struggles to survive in the Alaska wilderness, giving readers a fascinating personal memoir of a dedicated researcher and sensitive observer. Historic photographs, maps and a bibliography of McKennan's publications honour his legacy and highlighting his lasting contributions to Alaska Native history and anthropology. 266pp.
