Inua: Spirit World of the Bering Sea Eskimo (1982)

Publisher: Smithsonian Institution Press, Washington, D.C., 1982 ; Author(s): Fitzhugh, William W.; Kaplan, Susan A.; Collins, Henry B.; Ager, Thomas; Ray, Dorothy Jean, Frederick, Saradell Ard ; Hard Cover : 295 pages with numerous b/w illustrations ; English ; (ISBN: 087474430X / 0-87474-430-X)

In addition to presenting a visual ethnography of the Bering Sea Eskimo, this book places their life in a regional and chronological framework. Contacts and influences from the Bering Strait and from North Alaska and Siberia are discussed, as are those with Indians to the east and Aleuts to the South. Features of European contact are everywhere noted. The significance of these contacts - economic, artistic, religious, and otherwise - is seen also in the perspective of time by the use of archaeological materials touching upon the prehistoric roots of Bering Sea Eskimo culture and post-Nelson artifacts. This book is missing the DJ and the cover is plain white, so an internal page is shown in place of the cover at the left. The book is in very good condition.
