Summary
"Between the arrival of the first humans tens of thousands of years ago and the activities of mining and logging companies in the present, the environment of the North American Arctic has been shaped by people and their activities. Canada and Arctic North America is the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary environmental history of Canada - exploring the complex interplay between human societies and northern North America, from the Aleutian Islands to the Grand Banks, and from the Great Lakes to the Arctic Islands."--Jacket
