"Drawings and Stories by Milo Minock

Milo Minock book titled Drawing and Stories front cover Milo Minock book titled Drawing and Stories back cover

"Milo Minock was born on the Lower Yukon, and has spent most of his life in the village of Pilot Station. Although his work is relatively unknown in the outside world, he is an artist of stature among the people of the Kuskokwim - Lower Yukon Delta. During the more than thirty years that he has been working, Milo has produced a voluminous number of works ranging from pen drawings as shown in this book to skin paintings. Milo's felling for the Yu'pik Eskimo, his people, come through in each one of his works, depicting the warmth and hardship of day-to-day life on Alaska's two largest rivers. The stories in the book have been reproduced, untouched, in Milo's own hand to give the reader a feeling of the man himself"
