Abstract
Jenness conducts a detailed inventory of the Copper Inuit clothing, furniture, cooking implements, tools and hunting weaponry, with an emphasis on the method of construction of hunting, heating and lighting apparatus. The work stresses the total dependence of these people on a very few resources, consisting primarily of skin, bone and horn products from seal and caribou. The completeness of the range of illustrations generally results in descriptive clarity.
