Cook, Judith
This biography tells the story of a woman who lived totally outside the conventions of her time, Mary Bryant, a Cornish fisherman's daughter turned highway robber. Sentenced to hang in 1786, she was instead transported to Australia, from where she made a daring escape, only to be recaptured and brought back to London chained to the ship's deck in an open cage. Imprisoned in Newgate, and again threatened with death, her cause was championed by James Boswell, who was so taken by her that he defended her at her trial, winning her first a reprieve and then a full pardon. May Bryant's life reads like romantic fiction, yet this quietly spoken woman from a respectable home, who was not considered conventionally attractive, lived more dangerously than any fictitious heroine. Judith Cook has pieced together her life from various sources, including Boswell's diaries and archive material in Australia, Holland and the United States.256pp.

Edited By Mishler,Craig and Simeone,William E.
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.
