Glory Remembered is a thorough and comprehensive study of the history, function, typology, and decoration of the carved and bentwood headgear from the Aleutian Islands, the Kodiak area, the Alaska Peninsula, and Norton Sound. Originally conceived as a facsimile reprint of the 1930 Ivanov paper on the headgear and their designs, the project benefits immeasurably from the reproductions of early drawings, sixty-six added black & whites of known hats and details, and thirty color illustrations of extant examples, as well as the current view by Black, in which she provides recent archaeological, ethnographic, and linguistic information about the types of headgear and their distribution.
