About the Book


As ruggedly beautiful as the circumpolar north in which it evolved, the Canadian Inuit Dog has been a vital partner to the Arctic's indigenous people for millennia, helping them navigate, hunt and survive their frozen world. The Canadian Inuit Dog: Icon of Canada's North is an in-depth look at this ancient landrace, which predates modern breeds like the Siberian Husky and Alaskan Malamute. A deft and deeply-researched exploration of this aboriginal canine's history, genetics, form and function, this new book by Kim Han also chronicles the Inuit Dog's clashes with modernity, which threatens its existence more ominously than any Arctic blizzard.

The Canadian Inuit Dog: Icon of Canada's North is Print On Demand and is not available in bookstores but can be ordered online, anywhere in the world, at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Chapters/Indigo or from the publisher, Revodana publishing.

All proceeds from the book will be donated to Qimmivut.
