The Native Dwellings Series:

“Shemie has succeeded once again in creating an authoritative and intriguing non-fiction book that explores the lives of people through the homes they have built…The result is a rich and aesthetic reading experience for young readers.”

From the Inside Flap

A look at the fascinating shelters that Native communities in the Far North built, using only materials their environment provided: snow, stone, sod, skin, bones, and any driftwood picked up along the shores. Black-and-white and color drawings show the tools used, and how the snow house, the quarmang, the Alaskan sod-house, and the tent or tupiq were built. And of course, there?s information on the classic snow igloo which could be constructed in a few hours for emergency shelter.
