Hunters in the Barrens: The Naskapi on the Edge of the White Man's World by anthropologist Georg Hendricksen was first published in 1973. This 2010 edition contain a new foreword. The comprehensive study of the Naskapi Indians of Labrador is based on an anthropologist's life with them between 1966 and 1968, when families still followed the traditional pattern of hunting on the barrens during the winter and returning to their coastal settlements in the summer. Chapters discuss the Innu environment, their hunting culture, traditional leadership, and the impacts of living in Davis Inlet in summers. Maps and black and white photographs are included.
