Description

By: Dorrie Papademetriou
ISBN: 97808814122392

In 1794 a group of Russian orthodox missionaries landed on Kodiak Island, Alaska, with the intent of preaching to native Americans, baptizing those who would accept the Christian life and developing for them both academic and agricultural schools. Of these missionaries, Father Herman lived among the Aleut people for over 40 years, and earned the nickname Apa or "Grandfather". He was often involved with local authorities concerning the rights of local natives, who were constantly violated by explorers and foreign authorities. In this volume, author Dorrie Papademetriou captures the essence of the monk and the world of Apa and the Aleut people comes alive in illustrations of northern lights, Kodiak bears, giant cabbages and angel's wings.
