    Travel north—beyond the Arctic Circle—to Barrow, Alaska, and meet the proud Iñupiat people. For thousands of years they have hunted whales on the open sea, but now global climate change threatens their way of life. The whale hunt is about to begin, and you’re invited to come along! Just as soon as the ice covering the ocean cracks apart, the whales will appear. Set out with the Iñupiats in their bearded-sealskin boats to hunt bowhead whales, and witness a tradition that has been followed for three thousand years. So grab some warm clothes and loosen up your throwing arm—the hunt is on! Multiple award-winning author Peter Lourie is acclaimed for his environmental science writing. Here he transports young listeners due north to discover a culture completely different from their own and to show them what climate change means for the Iñupiat and us all.

As she became older, this made her a great leader.  Sarah used condemning letters, fiery speeches, and her autobiography, Life among the Piutes, to provide detailed accounts of her people’s struggle through years of starvation, unjust relocations, and violent attacks. Deborah Kogan Ray offers a remarkable look at an underrepresented historical figure.
