Footwear in Alaska is not only functional but also has incredible beauty and spirtual significance. This book examines the footwear of  the Inupiaq, Yup'ik, Aleut and Alutiiq.  Photographs of the land combined with reflections of seamstresses, dancers and hunters give the reader insight into what it is like to survive in this harsh and striking environment.  It also explains the variety of footwear, its uses and the decorative differences.  With drawings of patterns, construction techniques, and decorative details, Alaska Eskimo Footwear is a tribute to an exquisite art and the women who create it.
