About this book

In his final major publication Ernest S. "Tiger" Burch, Jr. reconstructs the distribution of caribou herds in northwest Alaska using data and information from research conducted over the past several decades as well as sources that predate Western science by more than one hundred years. Additionally, he explores human and natural factors that contributed to the demise and recovery of caribou and reindeer populations during this time. Burch provides an exhaustive list of published and unpublished literature and interviews that will intrigue laymen and experts alike. The unflinching assessment of the roles that humans and wolves played in the dynamics of caribou and reindeer herds will undoubtedly strike a nerve. Supplemental essays before and after the unfinished work add context about the author, the book, and the importance of both.

Media reviews

"This work is a reminder of how much Ernest S. Burch, Jr.'s voice – the social anthropologist versed in the biological sciences, with an ethnohistorian's appreciation of oral evidence – will be missed."
- Shepard Krech III, Brown University
