"There are many classic works about life on the Arctic ice, but this one includes their history, an ethnography of survival under hostile conditions, and an update about the traumas of what is loosely called 'contact and modernization.' It is linked to a famous PBS television series." --Martha C. Ward, University of New Orleans

This is the only textbook from college I re-read. Twice.
The Netsilik Eskimo, so different and amazing they are worth reading about and Balikci does a great job conveying the facts. This is not a story, it is a compilation of available data on the Netsilik describing how they lived.
