In this series of seven books, photojournalist Jan Reynolds documents the distinctive cultures and climates of indigenous peoples.

Kenalogak, a young Inuit girl, is helping her father build an igloo. She and her family sleep in this ice home while they are hunting caribou, an animal very important to her people.

While Father is hunting and Mother is sewing coats of caribou skin, Kenalogak and her brother play games and go ice fishing. Inside the igloo at night Grandmother and Grandfather lead the family in songs and dances. Kenalogak enjoys this time with her family, away from the village, learning the traditional ways of her people and their land.
