For years, tour guide Daniel Lum has brought visitors as well as his children out to the remote corners of Barrow, Alaska, one of the northernmost cities in the world, to witness polar bears and walrus on the dark, sandy beaches. Over time, snapping pictures for tourists and shooting photographs of his own, he has been a first-hand witness to the profound environmental changes taking place as his homeland shifts and disappears before his eyes. As arguments over climate change rage in more temperate locales, Nuvuk, the Northernmost is a poignant snapshot of life in a town where these changes are impossible to overlook. Lum's vivid photographs of wildlife, such as whales, polar bears, and birds, offer rare close-ups of animals few ever see. In addition, Lum provides vivid descriptions and pictures of daily life in and around Barrow, offering a compelling insider's introduction to living on the tip of the world. With Lum as a capable guide, Nuvuk, the Northernmost is a chance to see a rare world before it changes forever.

"Brower was deeply committed to Native culture, and his life history is an expression of the Inupiaq way of life. He acted as a mediator between Inupiaq whalers and non-Native scientists and helped protect Inupiaq subsistance whaling by sharing his vast knowledge of bowhead whale behavior with researchers. He was a central architect of the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation boundaries, and served for over twenty years as a consultant to scientists at the Naval Arctic Research Laboratory."--BOOK JACKET.

Landscape

The term 'landscape' was coined in an emergent capitalist world to evoke a particular set of elite experiences - a particular 'way of seeing'. But other people also have landscapes. The authors of this book are Geographers, Anthropologists and Archaeologists, and they explore landscape as something subjective, something experienced, something that alters through time and space, that is created by, and creative of, historical conditions and geographical emplacement. The articles range in time from 6000 BC to the present, and in space from Alaska and Melanesia to Belfast and Berlin. They show how the cultural and political analysis of landscape cuts across many disciplinary boundaries and how perceptions of the land and its history are created, negotiated and contested.
