Before maps, compasses, and GPS, Inuit used observation and experience to find their way in the Arctic. This book describes some of the traditional methods Inuit traditionally used to navigate on the land and sea, including using the sun and stars and looking carefully at snowdrifts. Quotations from Elders preserve this knowledge for future generations. Full-colour photographs throughout.
This book is part of the Nunavummi Reading Series, a Nunavut-developed series that supports literacy learning while teaching readers about the people, traditions, and environment of the Canadian Arctic.
