Based on Jochelson's 1909-1910 fieldwork with the Aleut, this is the ethnographic continuation of his archaeological investigations. This volume presents a comprehensive picture of Aleut society a hundred years ago.

"After nearly a century, Jochelson's works remain the most comprehensive treatment of Aleutian archaeology and ethnography in print. They are an indispensable resource for scholars, but thanks in part to the lavish use of historic photographs they also have great appeal for the lay reader." Rick Knecht, Museum of the Aleutians

Brand New. Some are in the original factory shrink-wrap, others were shipped to me without shrink-wrap. Either way, all are new. The book retails for $14.95
I can mail this by media mail for $2.75 extra.
If you need it in a hurry, I can ship it by priority mail for $6.50. I have multiple copies and I can ship a few copies (I think, I'd have to see how many can fit in the flat-rate priority mail envelope) for the $6.50 shipping.
