Alaska. Thoughts and Images: Native Voices Speak
(Gaithersburg), (Signature Book), (2012). Apparently a self-published anthology by Pedley (printed at Signature Book) of Native American writings on Alaska, with contributions by Fred Bigjim, Mary TallMountain, Nora Dauenhauer, Jim Schoppert, Edward Jackson Anawrok, and Glen Simpson. Quarto, featuring color photographs of Alaska by Pedley and commentary by him on the individual poets and their writings, and an introduction by Bruchac. This copy is signed by Pedley on the title page and inscribed by Pedley to Bruchac on the front flyleaf: "Joseph -- Many thanks for giving the book such a distinguished beginning! Bob/ 4-18-12." Fine in a fine dust jacket but for a corner crease to the front flap. A beautiful and little-known production: we could find no copies listed online or offered for sale anywhere, and suspect the book was privately printed and received little or no distribution.
