9780881507614: Nunamuit: Among Alaska's Inland Eskimos

A special commemorative edition of a classic text by one of the foremost experts on Arctic lands and peoples.

In 1949 Helge Ingstad flew into Northern Alaska where the Nunamiut people, a caribou-hunting group, resided. Ingstad was the first Westerner to visit the region. After living with the Nunamiut for nine months, such was the admiration for Ingstad that they wanted to name a beautiful mountain in their territory after him. And, in the 50+ years since then the mountain has been known locally as Ingstad Mountain. When Ingstad passed away in 2001 at the age of 101, a petition was made to the U.S. Geological Survey to officially name the mountain after Ingstad. In 2006 Ingstad Mountain officially enters the U.S. Geological Survey maps.Nunamiut is Ingstad's fascinating account of that nine-month visit with the Nunamiut. He learned their language, recorded their legends and superstitions, and participated in their caribou hunts and fishing expeditions. His personal account is an engrossing and original work. 45 black & white photographs, 21 black & white illustrations, index.

About the Author:

Helge Ingstad is most known for his discovery of the location where Vikings landed in North America 500 years before Columbus.

In addition to this book, Ingstad authored "East of the Great Glacier, The Viking Discovery of America, Westward to Vinland, East of the Great Glacier", and "Land of Feast and Famine". He died in 2001.
