Abstract:

"This comprehensive survey of the literature, though it reports on the built forms found in the whole area inhabited by the Eskimo peoples, concentrates on the structures erected by the residents of the Arctic, those living at 60 N and poleward. The authors discuss geography, climate, and ethnography as they relate to this indigenous architecture, then consider housing in four subregions of the area. They further distinguish the dwellings by time of year (summer, winter, and transitional-season housing) and include special-use structures. Although this is very much an object-oriented study, the authors also summarize certain beliefs, rituals, and customs as they relate to architecture."--Jacket.
