This volume introduces readers to the climatic “ends of the Earth,” one of the planet's most unique and perhaps most challenging ecosystems. Polar Regions reveals how these stark locations, once believed to be inhospitable, have in fact been home to a number of culture groups. Hardy Inuit (Eskimo), Sami (Lapps), Aleut, Samoyed, and others have successfully adapted to bone-chilling temperatures and harsh landscapes. Students will also learn how mid-latitude peoples of the past century began to recognize the Poles' strategic importance, their rich resources, and their value in scientific research.
