In 1897, Morris Jesup, president of the American Museum of Natural History in New York, sponsored a five-year expedition to Alaska and Siberia. Under the direction of anthropologist Franz Boas, research teams studied the cultural and biological similarities and differences among the peoples living on both sides of the Bering Strait. Now, 100 years after the expedition, this book presents a valuable record of this event. 83 photos.
