Shem Pete's Alaska: The Territory of the Upper Cook Inlet Dena'ina

by Kari, James ; Fall, James A. ; Pete, Shem


Shem Pete (1896-1989), the colorful raconteur from Susitna Station, left a rich legacy of knowledge about the Upper Cook Inlet Dena'ina world. The 1987 and 2003 editions of Shem Pete's Alaska contributed much to Dena'ina cultural identity and to public appreciation of the Dena'ina place-names network. With editorial refinements spanning more than three decades, this 2016 edition of Shem Pete's Alaska will remain the essential reference work on the Dena'ina people. The book contains many maps and photos (some in color), as well as a thorough index.

Language: Dena'ina (TA25)
