Eleven stories describe traditional practices and true adventures of the Tlingit hunters of Southeast Alaska. The stories are accompanied by learning activities and discussion questions for students and are arranged under the headings of bear, mountain goat and deer, and seal and sea lion. Topics include hunting weapons and strategies, bravery, the training of hunting dogs, behavior of the hunted animals, preparing and preserving game for food, and uses of game for clothing and tools. Suggested activities ask students to collect and record additional true adventure stories, study wildlife, dramatize and illustrate the stories, carve an animal from soap or clay, and consider the distinctions between sport and survival hunting.
