Book News The foreword explains that the text is written in the past tense, because the "story is set in the year 1909-10"; the Copper Inuit of the Central Canadian Arctic have survived and adapted to the present day, but their culture as it is described here began to permanently change as of that year, when an influx of "visitors" brought them into the orbit of Western commerce. Abundant color photos accompany the text to detail the practicalities of day-to-day life and the beliefs of this people of the cold. Translated from the French Inuit, les Peuples du Froid , published by +ditions Libre Expression, 1995. Lacks an index. Distributed by the U. of Washington Press. 9.5x12" Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
