Fair. Unpaginated. Softcover. reading copy. ANTHROPOLOGY. A timely and original photographic portrayal of the Inuit people living in Northern Quebec, and caught between two words. The Inuit are the last hunting culture on the North American continent, a people struggling to maintain their traditions in the face of sometime confusing progress, Stephen Williams' fifty-six duotone photographs convey the barren beauty of the Inuit villages, where snowmobiles and power lines appear like harbingers of inevitable change. His spare and sensitive text is combined with excerpts from conversations withe Inuit, both in English and in Inuit syllabics.
