In this compelling blend of words and vibrant images, Ken Wilson captures a complex portrait of the Aleutian Islands and their peoples. A book years in the making, "The Aleutian Islands" presents a collection of striking photographs that powerfully depict the islands' tumultuous weather and stunning landscape that have drawn so many to their shores. Wilson's stunning images capture the islands' unpredictable moods, from the swirling fogs to the windy shores to the lush greens of summer.The accompanying essays tell of life on the islands: the stories of the Unangan people, who have made the islands their home for centuries, tell of ancestral ties and ancient legends that ground their connections to their home. In contrast, the anecdotes from tourists and newer residents discuss the allure of the islands' tempestuous beauty and the rich history of the region.A groundbreaking work of photography and oral history, "The Aleutian Islands" is a captivating volume that writes a new chapter in the documented history of Alaska life and culture.
