Ancient People of the Arctic
Four thousand years ago, the Palaeo-Eskimos entered the far northern extremes of the North American continent, carving a living out of their bleak new homeland. Archaeologist McGhee reconstructs a picture of this life, discussing how they spread across the entire Arctic, and how they dealt with sharp climate changes. He also offers glimpses into their spiritual practices and world view, and speculates about their eventual demise. Includes many photographs of assorted art objects and tools found at archaeological sites. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
