The Inuit Thought of It is a useful classroom resource for a study of the Inuit culture as it was prior to contact with Europeans, and of the contributions made by the Inuit to modern society. Well illustrated with contemporary and archival photographs and colour illustrations, this book presents information about food, clothing, shelter, transportation, medicine and recreation through a lively combination of images and text. Maps and a timeline help to put the information into context. It is amazing how the Inuit adapted to the harsh climate of the Arctic, and thrived in this environment through ingenuity and perseverance. This book celebrates their traditional culture and shows how the people are now adapting to a new way of living.--Diane Mumford"Canadian Teacher" (09/01/2008)
