This book begins with a basic introduction about origin and geographic location of the Inuit and their early history. A map clearly shows the Inuit homeland in northern Canada, Alaska, Greenland, and Russia.

The early history includes brief overviews of the Thule Culture. Chapter 2 outlines the peoples' inventive methods of surviving in the Arctic climate. Chapter three describes the unique inventions created by the Inuit to travel on land and sea. Descriptions and roles of men and women in Inuit society are outlined in chapter four.

Information boxes include intriguing facts and truths, such as data about the caribou; the bowhead whale; art; and statistics. This 48-page book offers elementary students a valuable introduction to the Inuit of Canada and Alaska. The book is respectful offering accurate facts that dispel long-held myths and misinformation.
