KIRKUS REVIEW

An adequately informative and somewhat more than adequately illustrated introduction to the traditional and changing Eskimos' ways of living. The rigor, the seasonal round, methods of travelling of hunting and fishing, the use of the whole animal for food, clothing, shelter and equipment--all are alluded to briefly and pictured more fully. Then we move into the village with its trading post, school, games and sports, arts and crafts (but, please, no totem poles) and mention of some modern adaptations. Although not ""many huskies become pets for Eskimo children"" if they are also to become disciplined sled dogs, on the whole this is a fair representation of Eskimo life.
