An excellent study of ancient and contemporary
Aleut health and medical practices. The material on the early Aleut is based on
early sources, but the analysis of contemporary Aleut health and diet is a
result of physical examinations made by the author when he was in the Aleutians
with the Harvard University Peabody Museum Aleutian expedition.
