Tlingit Indians of Alaska

by Kamenskii, Anatolii

Kan, Sergei (trans.)

"Kan, who has published extensively on the Tlingit, is a careful and painstaking translator and editor . . . [this book] must be judged a major new addition to our knowledge and understanding of an important Alaskan Indian tribe." (Journal of the West)

"The book opens yet another door in ethnographic literature--that of missionary ethnography in general. . . . A valuable book for any student of the northwest coast, Russian-American history, or the dynamics of missionization." (Arctic)

Sergei Kan has written an extensive introduction and has annotated his translation. There is also a glossary of geographical terms, an index, and bibliography.
