"This book is a great resource aimed at older children. It has chapters with much more detail and information than the previous books mentioned. The book has tons of information, from why they are called Inuit, to finding food and hunting, their homes and how they build them. The book also covers their ancestors, art, jewelry, carving, shamans, storytelling, how they have developed and what they do today. The reader can find out how to make a carving from soap and instructions on making a genuine Inuit game. There is also an Inuit story telling how a crow brings daylight to the Arctic in summer, and even a recipe for blueberry-topped snowcream! This book really brings to life how very resourceful and tenacious the Inuit are. "They made walrus skin into waterproof boats. Sealskin boots and mittens kept feet and hands warm and dry. They melted snow inside animal bladders for drinking water. To light their homes, the Inuit burned oil from seal fat." We are told how the Inuit invented Parkas and snow goggles and how they are committed to keeping their culture and traditions alive. This book is interesting, informative and accessible. Each chapter is very concise, yet builds a vivid picture of the Inuit and their culture, using photographs and illustrations to great effect. I was surprised just how much information, both written and pictorial, was packed into these pages." - Polar Worlds
