About the Cover

"Tomcod fisher on the Bering Sea Ice" was photographed on the sea ice, one half mile from the shore of Nome, Alaska. This is a traditional way of fishing for the Inupiat Eskimo in the winter and early spring months and tomcod is an important supplement to their subsistence lifestyle. A close look at the scene reveals that all of the objects are also traditional and hand-crafted: ice spear, parka, mukluks; even the fishing sticks or jiggers, as the people call them, are of driftwood.
