About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Stewart, Gail

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10-Stewart presents a wide variety of facts, primary sources, and black-and-white photographs in a textbooklike format. She succeeds in dispelling many of the commonly held myths about the Eskimo people, their traditions, and culture; however, by including information on groups from various parts of Canada and Alaska without noting the differences among them, different misconceptions about all Eskimos may well result. Chapters focus on the strong ties and commitment to family and the community, and the positive and negative influence of outsiders on the land and the people, customs, and social problems. Sidebars present various perspectives on important traditional and contemporary issues such as survival, subsistence, education, and the challenge of maintaining one's identity in both native and western lifestyles. The numbered endnotes correspond to quotes used in the text. Despite some glitches and a ho-hum appearance, this thought-provoking title is packed with information and provides a unique and refreshing perspective on the Eskimo culture, which may lead students to more in-depth research. By focusing on the everyday activities of the people, it becomes relevant to YAs and enables them to compare and contrast their lifestyle, culture, and traditions with those of the Eskimo people. In addition to being a cover-to-cover read for a unit on cultures, the book could also supplement other social studies-related topics. A useful addition.
