Arctic Crossing - Jonathan Waterman

Arctic Crossing by Jonathan Waterman is the authors 2,200-mile journey across the roof of North America which took him through Inuit communities in Alaska to Nunavut, Canada's new, self-governed territory. His story offers firsthand observations of Inuit life, language, and beliefs; records their reactions to modernization; documents their centuries of unjust treatment at the hands of Kabloona (bushy-eyebrowed whites); and witnesses unemployment, teen suicide, spousal violence, and substance abuse. From the perspective of his 1997 - 1999 voyage - as the Inuit stand on the brink of a more hopeful, independent future - he also looks into a past marked by famous (or infamous) Arctic explorers, government cover-ups, and environmental destruction.This beautifully written work reveals the perils of crossing the Northwest Passage.
