Synopsis: Much of Canada and Alaska can be called the subarctic. This area features the taiga and often cold temperatures. The native peoples of this region had to adapt to this climate in many ways, including making clothes from fur, wearing snowshoes, and carefully insulating their homes. Readers are introduced to which groups can be classified as subarctic and the traditional ways of life they practice. Full-color photographs and historical images highlight the weather’s role in their lives as fun fact boxes add more detail about how the fur trade impacted these groups, how they found food, and more.
