Synopsis

Hands-on History! Eskimo Inuit, Saami & Arctic Peoples Learn All About the Inhabitants of the Frozen North, with 15 Step-by-step Projects and Over 350 Exciting Pictures by Dr Jen Green

You can learn all about the inhabitants of the frozen north, with 15 step-by-step projects and over 350 exciting pictures. You can discover the origins of the different people who live in the most northerly reaches of the Earth - including the Inuit, Nenet, Saami and Chukchi races - and how they have managed to survive in such harsh conditions. It includes 15 step-by-step projects: build a model igloo, make a Nenet tent, create a shaman's drum, fashion some warming mittens and a traditional Saami hat, and construct your very own Inuit hunting boat. Fact boxes provide extra insights and highlight links with the present day. It includes more than 350 photographs and illustrations include cross-sections, historical maps and a pictorial timeline. It is perfect for home or school use for 8- to 12-year-olds. In one of the world's most extreme environments, mankind has developed unique methods of survival. This fact-filled book examines Arctic habitation through the ages. Find out about the amazing ways in which humans have learned to hunt, herd and farm in harmony with nature, using the wildlife around them for food, fur, transport and even racing! Read of their centuries-long struggles against freezing winter winds and whalers from Europe. Marvel at their beautiful carvings and hand-crafted tools - many of which you can make yourself!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
