Multicultural Alaska Series winner of Best Textbook Award-2016. This is the story of Southwest Alaska. It was written by University of Alaska Southeast Masters in Teaching students Matt Bowes, Lindsay Clark, Ryan Hickel, Shivani Kakde, Erin Popek and Chris Won. It contains a breadth of topics that will hopefully entice the curious reader to further explore the rich and sea-fringed world we have introduced.
Southwest Alaska is a place where one can rarely get far from the sea. We hope within these pages you can hear an echo of long traveling, white waves crashing onto windswept, dark shores of Aleutian beaches. There, the Unangax continue to live between the ocean below and the omnipresent volcano above.
