Storytelling is a precious, vibrant tradition among the Native peoples of the Far North. Collected here for the first time are stories from the communities of interior Alaska and the Yukon Territory. These are the tales the people tell about themselves, their communities, and the world they inhabit. øOur Voices showcases twenty storytellers and writers who represent a full range of Athabaskan and related languages of Alaska and the Yukon. Both men and women recount popular tales of ancient times that describe the origins of social institutions and cultural values, as well as meaningful, sometimes intimate stories about their own lives and families or the history of their people. As representatives of an art transmitted through countless generations and now practiced with renewed interest and vigor by people reclaiming their cultural heritage, these narratives create a broad, brightly colored, richly detailed picture of the world of the Far North, present and past.

Wie der Titel schon verrat, geht es in den Rundmails dieses Sommers hauptsachlich um den Yukon River. Rund 15 Jahre nach seiner ersten Kanutour auf dem Yukon River - die uber 700 Kilometer der Standardstrecke" von Whitehorse nach Dawson City - erfullte sich Berti einen lang gehegten Traum: Er machte sich auf, die restlichen rund 2.500 Kilometer des grossen Flusses" - wie die Einheimischen ihn nannten - von Dawson City bis zur Beringsee mit seinem Kanu zu paddeln. Dabei traf er auf einheimische Jager und Fischer, weisse Dorfbewohner, Kanuten aus den verschiedensten Landern sowie Baren, Elche, Adler und Falken. Selbstverstandlich fehlte es erneut nicht an komischen Begegnungen, wie etwa, als Berti mit sieben nackten Yupik-Altesten vor einer Sauna sitzt. Widrige Witterungsbedingungen drohten mehrmals zu einem vorzeitigen Abbruch oder einer Verkurzung der Tour zu fuhren. Wie ublich gibt es daneben neue Geschichten und Informationen uber das Yukon Territorium im allgemeinen sowie den Silver Trail und vor allem Keno City im speziellen. Nicht nur bei einigen Kurztouren in die nahere Umgebung, Dawson City und Whitehorse treffen Berti und regelmassige Leser auf Bekannte aus den vorherigen Yukon Rundmails. Aber es gilt auch Abschied zu nehmen und zwar von der Puderosa Cabin. Informationen und Erlebnisse aus Yukon und Alaska humorvoll und kurzweilig erzah

Romantic history-filled names have long fired the imagination of every reader and visitor to the Northland. In Alaska-Yukon Place Names, author James W. Phillips takes the vacationing tourist, historian, and armchair traveler through the most memorable places in the Alaska-Yukon region. Since the most popular routes north to Alaska and the Yukon are the Marine Highway and the Alaska Highway through Canada, the entries of Alaska-Yukon Place Names include ghost towns, islands, waterways, mountains, and glaciers in northern British Columbia. Whether more interested in the scenery, the historic past, or the fabulous yarns connected with the area, you will be delighted by the colorful towns of Alaska and the Yukon: Poorman, Shaman’s Village, Chicken and Eek, and will have no trouble imagining the mettle of those pioneers who traveled Moose Pass, shot Squaw Rapids, or panned in Pure Gold Creek.
