ARCTIC HUNTER by Diane Hoyt-Goldsmith

ARCTIC HUNTER

Age Range: 8 - 12

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Hoyt-Goldsmith (Totem Pole, 1990) focuses on another group of Native Americans, the Inupiat, returning to their traditions for a summer of fishing, seal hunting, and preparing food for the winter. Back in their modern home in Kotzebue, they also eat pizza, Chinese food, and bananas like any other Americans. Both in the many colorful photos and in the engaging text, the picture here is upbeat; there are no hints of the pressures of bridging cultural differences that were so sympathetically and skillfully depicted in Aylette Jenness's family portrait, Between Two Worlds, 1989). Still, a detailed and attractive picture of a family enjoying and honoring their traditions while functioning competently in the larger culture. Glossary; index. (Nonfiction. 8-12)
