The 1999 Nunavut Handbook, authored largely by Nunavut writers, is the world's most comprehensive travel guidebook to the Canadian Arctic. In addition to vital travel information, the Handbook includes extensive cultural and historical accounts of the Inuit inhabitants, their extraordinary land claim, and new this year, a political section that explains the structure of Canada's newest territorial government, and summarizes the roles of Nunavut's land claims and other organizations.The Inuit here are direct descendants of the Thule, who inhabited this region in small groups almost 1, 000 years ago. ... They used this wood to construct ... parked outside homes; caribou and polar bear hides hanging from railings; arctic char fillets drying on racks; and perhaps a frozen seal or two resting on a doorstep.
