This is an unbearably beautiful book about th e science of survival practiced by a people for whom everyday acts are a way of prayer. The amount of knowledge the Yup'ik people had to have in order to survive in the far North is immense.There is no separate category for science, religion , or art--this is all part of a deep morality based on restraint and compassion.
