Synopsis: The James Bay Cree lived in relative isolation until 1970, when Northern Quebec was swept up in the political and cultural changes of the Quiet Revolution. The ensuing years have brought immense change for the Cree, who now live with the consequences of Quebec's massive development of hydroelectricity, timber, and mineral resources in the North.

Home Is the Hunter presents the historical, environmental, and cultural context from which this recent story grows. Hans Carlson shows how the Cree view their lands as their home, their garden, and their memory of themselves as a people. By investigating the Cree's relationship with the land and their three hundred years of contact with outsiders, the author illuminates the process of cultural negotiation at the foundation of ongoing political and environmental debates.

This book is more than a story of dam building and industrial logging in northern Quebec. It offers a way of thinking about indigenous peoples' struggles for rights and environmental justice in Canada and elsewhere.

Book Description: Carlson renders the arc of Cree history intelligible to outsiders and makes it relevant to the people living east of James Bay today. His is an original, and much-needed, synthesis ... that offers new insight into and understanding of the region and its people. – Graeme Wynn
