About this title:

Synopsis: Describes the natural environment and traditional way of life of the Eskimos, contrasting their old customs with the new lifestyle brought by modern civilization.

From School Library Journal: Grade 2-3 One of at least three books currently available on the life of the Alaskan and Canadian Eskimos. Newman's Eskimos (Gloucester Pr, 1980; o.p.), with full-color paintings, offers the best visual depiction of Inuit ingenuity in adapting to the Arctic cold. Unfortunately, it includes only a brief mention of the dramatic changes that have taken place in traditional Eskimo life, leaving the impression that the traditional life style is still common. Osinski's title is almost identical in coverage and photographic illustration to Newman's The Changing Eskimos (Watts, 1979; o.p.). Each discusses, briefly and clearly, the Inuits' homelands, both traditional and contemporary housing, transportation, food, clothing, recreation and arts, although Osinski is more careful to use the preferred terms Inuit and Yupik, rather than Eskimo. Both make clear the contrast between present and past life styles, although neither suggests the social dislocations that have accompanied "modernization." Each includes some information not included in the other, and libraries that already own the Newman may want to purchase the Osinski as well because of the continuing demand for information on the subject.
