Editor E. N. Anderson has provided detailed introductory material recounting Duff's life and work, and puts Duff's final contributions in the context of Northwest coast life.Anderson, E. N. is the author of 'Bird of Paradox The Unpublished Writings of Wilson Duff' with ISBN 9780888393609 and ISBN 0888393601.
