Kwethluk: six hundred miles from the nearest highway, fifty-below winters, generator electricity, no running water (except in the school and teacher housing), no doctors, no dentists, no veterinarians, no restaurants, no malls nor movie theaters. Here, weÕd begin our teaching assignments for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, white peopleÑkassÕaqsÑworking for those who in another time and place had helped to kill Crazy Horse and Geronimo for their lands. But this time, to paraphrase the BIAÕs official mission, weÕd come with a cavalry of books to save the natives from themselves.
