Beautifully illustrated official U.S. Government resource tells provides a firsthand account of suprising archaeological discoveries and tells a fascinating story, punctuated by volcanic eruptions and floods, pixies and small tools, strange newcomers and unexplained disappearances, and puzzled engravings on river pebbles. It is hoped that the publication will serve as as primary resource for teachers of Alaska History and that it will inspire student interest in the prehistory and history of this great region. This illustrated reference covers the time period of 8000 B.C. to the 1920s and the archaeology discoveries of this Naknek region began in the 1960s.  The 19th century covers ethnic groups, settlements and population, the fish business, historical maps and more. 

Audience: Educators would find this to be a useful resource in teaching students about Alaskan History. Archaeologists, historians, and history buffs would also enjoy this publication.
