Subtitle: An Aleutian history compiled by Tyler M. Schlung and students of the Nikolski School, Umnak Island, Alaska. From the back cover: Nikolski, Population 34, is the last remaining village of more than 20 ancient sites on Umnak Island in the eastern Aleutians. In Umnak: The People Remember, The Aleut elders of Nikolski tell of life in the wind-whipped edge of the Bering Sea. There are tragic chapters here, stories of betrayal and loss. The fatal wreck of the Umnak Native. The little-known saga of forced evacuation and heartbreaking return in World Waar II. But there are also the clear voices of the village children, the hope of all. "If you are going to live off the land," two young boys write, "working together is important."
