Robert A. McKennan (1903-1982) spent 1929 to 1933 in several remote Native villages where he documented Interior Athabaskan life. His writings are an extraordinary window onto Athabaskan culture before World War II and form a significant part of anthropology's humanistic tradition.

Editors Mishler and Simeone have annotated McKennan's journals and provided a wealth of contextual material in two substantive introductory chapters. Readers will appreciate this rare perspective on a vanishing way of life.
