Once Upon an Eskimo Time (Paperback)

£13.50
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Continuing the sacred tradition of her ancestors, in "Once Upon an Eskimo Time" Edna Wilder retells a year in her Eskimo mother's life. Wilder eloquently captures the oral storytelling traditions of her people, and she employs descriptions of the weather and harsh climates of Alaska's Norton Sound to illustrate the hardiness of her mother's spirit. Family values, subsistence living, and the cycles of life form a narrative that captures the now-vanished lifestyle along the Bering Sea.

Edna Wilder lives in Fairbanks. She has taught classes in skin-sewing and basket weaving at the University of Alaska Fairbanks for over twenty years.
