Skimming the Top of the World
Traveling Among Peoples of the Far North

"We two middle-aged women, both teachers, explored Alaska and Haida Gwai in the islands of western British Columbia. After a few years' acquaintance with the indigenous people of the North, Caroline and I learned to see them in the context of their cultures, and realized how devastatingly abrupt was their transition into a contemporary lifestyle. Underneath the veneer of modern civilization we saw the deeply satisfying "old ways" still or again asserting themselves. These life-styles mingled creatively--sometimes gleaning the best from both old and new."
