Hyvä yleiskatsaus! Kiinnostaisi pureutua tarkemmin vielä historiaan.
Oh I couldn't finish this. That makes me sad because it's very historical and factual and written by a Sami author, and I just get really bored. It's really a textbook.

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.
Se oli vaan ok. Olihan siinä tietoa, mutta aiheesta olisi voinut saada eläväisemman version. Painoksessa oli myös muutama ihmeellinen lause, joiden merkitys jäi epäselväksi ja kerran yksi kappale toistui kokonaan. Mutta mahtaako olla toista tällaista laajaa saamelaisia koskevaa kirjaa?

Fascinating and comprehensive look at the history, culture, politics, struggles and art of the Sami. But it wasn't a particularly organized book - not much of a narrative. Kind of like a really long Wikipedia entry.
