York : Random, 1990
was a bride on the coast of what we call Alaska. This is the story of her
life as hostage to the Russian fur traders who levied Alaskan slaves to
bring in the valuable furs coveted by 19th century Russians. Clearly Russians
measured civilization in different terms than these proud and isolated
Alaskans. The guns gave them power. This is the story of Alaskan's inner
strengths -- the power of their masks and visions with which they struggled
to survive the Russian invasion.
