Book Description: The author tells a story drawn from oral memories, a story which will soon disappear with the last Inuit generation to have seen the whalers. In their last decades the whalers were traders as much as whalers, and after 1911, when the Hudson’s Bay Company built its first Baffin Island post at Lake Harbour and began its sweep into the Arctic territories in pursuit of white-fox furs, the traders in many ways took the whalers’ place, inheriting the customs and systems developed in the whaling years.

The author tells a story drawn from oral memories, a story which will soon disappear with the last Inuit generation to have seen the whalers. Illuminated by a remarkable collection of drawings, photographs, and illustrations, many in full colour, tales are told of when the whalers first appeared on the north-east coast of Baffin Island, how they set up land stations in the whale-rich waters of Cumberland Sound, and how they eventually pushed on into Hudson Bay. During this time the Inuit not only fed and clothed the whalers, they hunted with them, adding to the whalers' wealth. Our understanding of change in Inuit life is often linked to the fur traders, who arrived in the North fifty years after the arrival of the whalers. In truth it is the Inuit's close contact with the foreign world of the whalers which marked the beginning of a change in previously undisturbed Inuit culture and traditions.
