powerful, moving, & important

An excellent and important book, ranking with his more famous Never Cry Wolf. Farley Mowat is a Canadian treasure, a superb author.

People of the Deer

by Raech on Aug 17, 2007

This book is very sobering. It chronicles Farley Mowat's exploration into the Barrens of Northern Canada, where he studied caribou and lived with a group of isolated inland Eskimo, the Ihalmiut. Entirely dependent upon the caribou, they were almost wiped out by starvation in the 1940s. Attempts by the Canadian government and others to help them only intensified their demise. The first several chapters outlining Mowat's struggle to reach the remote area make rather dry reading. But once he is among the Ihalmiut and learns the rudiments of their language the book springs to life. It describes individuals, customs, legends and the history of a very peaceable and communal culture. The story of Mowat's daily life with them in a bleak and forbidding land is sprinkled with humor and full of vitality. This is an utterly fascinating account.
