Ozette as a book is not only authoritative, it is spectacular because of its 90 illustrations, most of them in color and the bulk of them by Ruth Kirk. The story behind Ozette is compelling.

This book is a delight! ... It is a loving, knowledgeable, and well researched explanation of how the Makah village was remembered by the tribal members.... It is a book you should put on your Christmas list, give to a colleague who worked at the site, or just order for yourself. Happy reading!
