86 pages. dozens of full-color and black-and-white images. The cover shows some shelf-wear, otherwise the book is in excellent condition.

Born in 1908 in Ohio, Fred Machetanz originally had no connection with Alaska. Then in 1935, when he was fresh out of graduate school, his uncle, Charles Traeger, a gold rush stampeder turned businessman, sent his nephew a free ticket to the great new land. As happens with many others who come to Alaska just for a visit, Fred Machetanz stayed for as long as he could to see as much of it as he could. He stretched his projected six-week stay to two years, living in the village of Unalakleet. Impecunious, as most your artists are, Machetanz paid his Eskimo models with his original charcoal drawings of themselves. But he kept a careful photographic record of his work, doing his own film processing under the most primitive of conditions. Later his Unalakleet models would become subjects for lithographs.
