This third book in Jean Lester's popular Faces of Alaska series has been much anticipated by Alaskans and visitors alike. Lester is known for her ability to weave her original paintings, oral histories, and historic and contemporary photographs into unique biographical portraits of a diverse group of the state's most intriguing personalities. Her eclectic talents allow her to depict and elicit intimate narratives from a group of people as varied as the land of Alaska--trappers and businessmen, politicians and teachers, Native artists and Russian Orthodox priests. She often painted as they talked, and as the images came alive with their words, their words came alive with the energetic strokes of Lester's brush. Here she brings us another group of Alaskans who have made important contributions to political, cultural, and economic life in the north:
D. A. Bartlett Debbie Bourdukofsky Helen (Sandy) Burd Larry Carr Rosie Floresca Barney Gottstein Ellen Hayes Robert Henning Anore Jones Josephine Jurgeleit John Kelsey Martha Kowalski Marie Laws Lael Morgan Walter Newman Fr. Michael Oleska Betsy Pitzman Elva Scott Al Swalling Alex Tarnai Willy Lou Warbelow.
