Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In this book, Cumming has compiled stories from over 50 local families and paired them with images both from the Pratt's permanent collection and from family contributors. It covers the 60 years of Homer's growth from a cluster of shacks on the Homer Spit to its beginning as a town with roads, public utilities, a dock and harbor, a hospital, and year-round employment. The book also includes stories of Alaska Native people who lived in the land the Dena'ina called Tuggeght before and as European and Lower 48 settlers arrived.
