Book description
Part from back cover:
'In the Canadian arctic, in the cruelest living conditions in the world, are two of the few peoples left who depend entirely on hunting to keep themselves alive. They are the eskimos and the indians. The author, with photographer Pierre Tairraz went among these peoples during the winter, when conditions were at their worst: -35 Centigrade in the Indian lands and -40 to -50 around the Eskimo settlements. The two Frenchmen shared the hardships, food and triumphs of the hunters. They travelled vast distances on sleds. They slept in tents and igloos, in shacks and cabins. Wherever they went they made friends with the hunters.

This is the story of their two expeditions. There will be few books to rival its shrewd account of two peoples who are gradually losing their tribal identity through intermarriage and through the spread of government programs for health, education and welfare.
