Never in Anger
Portrait Of an Eskimo Family
by Jean L Briggs
Recommended by Tamarack Song

      From 1963-1965 the anthropologist/author lived in an igloo with the Utku Eskimo family who adopted her. Written in autobiographical form, rich with insight into the emotional and family lives of an Old Way People, the book is peppered with tidbits on physical lifestyle and culture. Through vignettes of daily life, she unfolds a warm and perceptive tale of the behavioral patterns of the Utku, their way of training children and their handling of deviations from desired behavior. Paperback, 416 pages. Harvard University Press. 1971. ISBN: 0674608283.

Absorbingly and affectingly written. A remarkable that bids to become an anthropological classic" - Publishers' Weekly.
