I started this book but didn't like the writing style. I switched to The Long Exile by Melanie McGrath and I'm enjoying it. I believe the two books overlap in content and historical events.

This book's most powerful aspect is without a doubt Mowat's ability to share with his readers the awe, fascination and ultimate humility by which he was struck upon entering the northern realm of the Ihalmiut people. Much is to be learned and experienced by reading this tale of the true nature of Canadian indigeneity, both tragic and lovely.
Fantastic if you love Aboriginal Culture and history! Mowat is a visual writer, and his accounts of the Ihalmuit's culture is amazingly detailed. Here is a passionate account and acknowledgement of the blood that stains Canadian history... much unknown to the greater Canadian populations. This book is great for educational purposes and when partnered with comprehensive histories of the Plains Indians, makes Canadian History very exciting and the reader much more empathetic to the country we assume is naturally "kind" and accepting. A real eye opener.
