From the Foreword- "The art of the Canadian Inuit is a phenomenon of the mid-twentieth century; in thirty years, a treasured abundance of good art has come from a very few persons within this distinct culture. We admire the varieties of style and medium, the range and scale of subject matter. We wonder that such beauty, vitality, joy and eloquence can pour forth from a culture under severe stress from rapid, deep and pervasive change."
