Life in the Far North combines striking images and easy-to-follow text to describe the Native nations that have lived in the northernmost part of present-day North America for thousands of years. The frigid climate has impacted every element of daily life for groups such as the Inuit, Yup'ik, and Inupiat. Children will be keen to learn about:
-dwellings such as snow houses
-hunting and fishing
-the daily lives of men, women, and children
-the making of crafts and clothing using natural materials
-traditions and ceremonies
-how the arrival of Europeans changed the ways of life of these peoples
