0 Reviews
Annotation Ages 4 to 8 years. Life in the Far North combines striking images and easy-to-follow text to describe the Native nations that have lived in the northernmost part of present-day North America for thousands of years. The frigid climate has impacted every element of daily life for groups such as the Inuit, Yup & apos;ik, and Inupiat. Children will be keen to learn about: dwellings such as snow houses; hunting and fishing; the daily lives of men, women, and children; the making of crafts and clothing using natural materials; traditions and ceremonies; how the arrival of Europeans changed the ways of life of these peoples.
