Arctic Village by Robert Marshall

Book Description

This classic is an original work of literature by one of America's foremost conservationists and is an account of the people of the north, both Native and white, who give Alaska its special human flavor. First published over fifty years ago, the book is still a favorite among old-time Alaskans and, over the years, has prompted numerous readers to pack up and move to Alaska. The richness of statistical coverage in this book, and Marshall's careful descriptions of the characters he met, provide readers with a window to the world of 1930 and a nearly complete record of the Koyukuk civilization as he saw it. Readers learn what the people of Wiseman thought about sex, religion, politics, and the myriad of ways they found to cope with and enjoy life in a wilderness community.

Author Biography - Robert Marshall

Robert Marshall is well remembered for his contributions to wilderness preservation. A founder of the Wilderness Society in 1935, he carried forward John Muir's battle for conservation. As with Muir, Marshall's personal appeal and persuasive arguments reached beyond his immediate circle to gain adherents to the cause. He is considered the inspiration for the creation of Alaska's eight-million-acre Gates of the Arctic National Park and the one-million-acre Bob Marshall Area in Montana. He is author of numerous influential essays and two books.
