"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.
