Routledge has overcome one of the difficulties in writing history--relating the historical events of the nineteenth century to the lives of people today--while also achieving what few other scholars have attempted: combining sound historical research with the contemporary voice of Inuit. Her finely nuanced book brings out the texture of similarities and differences between Inuit and American sensibilities of home. Living history indeed! --Christopher Trott, University of Manitoba Routledge has written an extraordinary book, and she's managed it by making a seemingly slight adjustment to the cultural spectacles through which the Arctic and its peoples, and those from elsewhere who have sojourned there, have been seen in their worlds, both familiar and strange. . . . She accomplishes this feat, remarkably, by making a sense of displacement her main theme. --Arctic Book Review Recommended. . . Routledge's finely detailed narrative makes good use of archival sources and interviews. . . . Routledge's skill as a storyteller makes this book a pleasure. This account will have lasting value as contemporary Inuit struggle against a deepening tide of outside colonialism. --Choice Do You See Ice? is a true landmark in interdisciplinary cultural history, melding imaginative, intrepid research with bold, fresh interpretation. In fascinating detail, Routledge illuminates two radically different ways of life in collaboration and conflict. No one has written more compellingly about the varying cultural meanings of space, time, and home. I am filled with admiration for this humane and pioneering book. --Jackson Lears, author of Rebirth of a Nation Weaving together stories told by Inuit men and women with those set down by white men who chased whales, wealth, and adventure, Do You See Ice? lets us consider what it has meant to travel, to be lost, to be homesick, and finally, to be home. --Ann Fabian, author of The Skull Collectors: Race, Science, and America's Unburied Dead
