About this title:

Synopsis: Critical forces of culture and nature collide in this comprehensive history of Ellesmere Island in the age of contact. Surveying the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Lyle Dick presents an impressive treatment of European-Inuit contact in the High Arctic (the area of what is now the Quttinirpaaq National Park) while considering the roles of the natural environment and cultures as factors in human history. As he charts the dynamic interplay between change and continuity in this forbidden land, Dick unravels the complexities of cultural exchange and human relationships to the Arctic landscape. Muskox Land : Ellesmere Island in the Age of Contact provides a meticulously researched and richly illustrated treatment of Canada's High Arctic as it interweaves insights from historiography, Native studies, ecology, anthropology, and polar exploration. Winner of the Harold Adams Innis Prize for Best English Language Book in the Social Sciences, Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.

About the Author: Lyle Dick is the West Coast Historian for Parks Canada and president of the Canadian Historical Association. He has published extensively in the fields of Arctic history, western Canadian history, and historiography. Lyle Dick has also received numerous awards for endeavours and accomplishments in his chosen fields.
