Master craftsman, educator and homesteader Dr. William Coperthwaite spent decades studying traditional craft around the world seeking simpler, more peaceful ways to live. Bill assembled a museum of Eskimo artifacts, and took this to Alaska to share with Eskimo children the beauty of their culture. Not only was Bill studying the crafts and artifacts of Eskimo, but more importantly he was seeking ways to instill pride in a population over-run by modern influences. He recognized the wisdom inherent in tradition and believed that we will need all resources available; modern and ancient, in order to survive.

Bill is also the author of A Handmade Life (Chelsea Green Publishing).

This publication is a reproduction of Bill’s report to the faculty of the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University.
