Etok is a contradiction in terms -- wild-eyed and mystic, by turns incredibly rudeand terribly vulnerable, but always politically astute. He is both a product of hisown ancient culture and a prophet of our times. Etok is the only book whichgives an account -- from the Alaska Native point-of-view -- of how AlaskaNatives organized and fought to obtain the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act.As such, it is a valuable part of Alaska history. It is a story that should makeevery Native American proud. Unavailable for 20 years, this biography of Charles Edwardsen, Jr. (Etok), anEskimo radical, is the story of the struggle to protect Alaska Native land rightsand way of life in the face of the relentless onslaught of Western culture. A mustfor all Native American collections.…

…As the first account of the development of "Eskimo Power" and their vast land reclamation, Etok is a particularly important book.
Christian Science Monitor

…an important book for those concerned with the plight of the Indian and with the effects the Alaska pipeline will have on native cultures and lands.
