The Meaning of Ice is a beautifully done book about people and sea ice in three Arctic communities. The maps, figures and tables are very helpful in understand life in the high arctic. The sea ice is a garden for these people and provides for them. The book is a celebration of ice as seen and experienced by the Inuit, Inughuit and Inupiat who have lived in and used this environment for thousands of years. There are contributors to the book from all 3 cultures. The photograpy is stunning as well as the artwork.You will not only learn about sea ice but about the ideas of home, as well as physical, spiritul and emotional nourishment from harvesting, sharing and eating traditional foods. You will also learn about the freedom to travel in the high Arctic as well as the tools and clothing that are used in every day life and to understand what sea ice means to those whose lives are connected to its annual and seasonal cycles every day of the year. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a better understanding of the Arctic.
