Fifty Miles from Tomorrow: A Memoir of Alaska and the Real People

Beschreibung

A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW EDITORS' CHOICE

An alternately charming and harrowing account of over 50 years of one remarkable native Alaskan's life - from living off the land north of the Arctic Circle, to the Alaskan senate, Hensely is a huge hero to his community.

Born twenty-nine miles north of the arctic circle, William L. Iggiagruk Hensley was raised to live the seminomadic life that his Iñupiaq ancestors had lived for thousands of years. In this stirring memoir, he offers us a rare firsthand account of growing up Native Alaskan, and later, in the lower forty-eight, as a fearless advocate for Native land rights. In 1971, after years of tirelessly lobbying the United States government, he played a key role in a landmark victory that enabled the Inupiaq to take charge of their economic and political destiny. Fifty Miles from Tomorrow is "a joyous celebration of Hensley's life among the Iñupiaq people and of fighting for their rights" (Library Journal).
