Produced and published by high school students at Unalaska, Alaska in 1982 as part of a community history project, The Unkown Tales tells as much about the history of the Aleutian Islands and its native tribes and immigrants at the turn of the century as it does about its author Henry Swanson. He recorded his life history for the high school students through a series of tales: childhood, the last sea otter hunts, Navy years, WWI, the fox business, the war out West, and back to Alaska after the war.
