Author Talk with Daniel Lee Henry
In his new book, Across the Shaman’s River: John Muir, the Tlingit Stronghold, and the Opening of the North, Henry explores John Muir’s relationship to Alaska and its people. It builds from Muir’s unpublished journals and the author’s interviews with 16 Tlingit elders to reveal a profound intercultural dynamic rarely seen in American history writing.
Henry is an educator, journalist and broadcaster who lived in Alaska for 30 years and founded the Alaska Native Oratory Society. His essay, “A Murder of Crows,” was the winner of the 2000 Pushcart Prize. He will sign books at the talk and on Friday, June 29 at the Store at the APK.
