I. Mel'nikov and there is also some limited information here on culture history and social organization. In regard to general coverage the authors present in a clear and concise manner data pertinent to the basic identification of the people and their language, location, neighboring tribes with whom they come in contact, fauna and flora of the region, village locations, basic economy (with primary emphasis on reindeer husbandry and marine hunting), house construction, clothing food transportation, social order and religious beliefs, and mythology.
