This is a great read if you're looking for historical information about the Sámi people. I was a little disappointed as this was assigned to me as an ethnography and due to the author being from the region being studied and also his lack of interviews of any Sami persons, I wouldn't actually consider this to be an ethnography. However I loved how readable this book was and I found the author's writing style to be thoroughly enjoyable.
