Description

In this impassioned sequel to People of the Deer, Farley Mowat describes a modern atrocitythe virtual genocide of the inland Inuit people, the Ihalmiut. How could this have occurred in the 20th century, in Canada, one of the most progressive societies in the world? The answer is simple: it was a tragedy brought on by an appalling series of errors, neglect, misunderstanding, disinterest and bureaucratic incompetence.
