The most detailed and well-illustrated study of material culture for any northern Athabascan language group to date, "Gwich'in Athabascan Implements" reproduces pre- and early post-contact tools that are historically important to the Athabascan people. A long-term collaboration between anthropologist Thomas A. O'Brien and Athabascan elder David Salmon, this volume provides forty one-to-one sketches of a wide variety of implements, many of which are no longer commonly in use. "Very few ethnographers or anthropologists are willing or able to take the time to do the kind of careful work that David and Tom did together over the years. And there are very few elders anywhere in the Athabascan area who have David's range of knowledge...This is a story that needed to be told." (S. Craig Gerlach, University of Alaska Fairbanks.).
