KIRKUS REVIEW

In this text by a resident of Alaska, the history of the fur bearing seal becomes a topic of excitement and fascination. Beginning with the seventeenth century discovery and use of the seal by the Russians through the near extinction of the animal in the nineteenth century, up to the current conservation attitude of our government, Fredericka Martin gives an illuminating and sympathetic account. Readers concerned with the history of the Northwest and Alaska will find much of interest here.
