"There are tragic chapters here, stories of
betrayal and loss. The fatal wreck of the Umnak Native. The
little-known saga of forced evacuation and a heartbreaking return in
World War II.
But there are also the clear voices of the village children, the
hope of all. 'If you are going to live off the land,' two young boys write, 'working together is
important.'" – From the back cover.
