The Inuit is a children's information book published by The Children's Press. It is part of the True Book series about Native Americans designed to introduce young students to the culture and history of a specific Native group. This book begins with a basic introduction about origin and geographic location of the Inuit formerly called Eskimos. A map clearly shows the Inuit homeland in northern Canada, Alaska, Greenland, and Russia. The author points out that Inuit today, especially those in Canada, prefer to be called by their name for themselves, Inuit. Basic population statistics are provided as well as the standard explanation of origin as the migration from Asia generations ago. Following sections describe the environment (including plants and animals), hunting, clothing, shelter, the arrival of Europeans, and life in the North today. Each section contains full colour photographs with captions, and two inserts about Inuit Art, and Sky Tossing add information about art and recreation. The book has an index, a simple glossary, and a brief list of books and websites for more research. The text and images clearly demonstrate that the Inuit are a vital culture of the Canadian Arctic. This is a good resource for students in grades three to five writing reports. A paper edition is also available.
