Books: “Hunters of the Alpine Ice: The NWT Ice Patch Study” (by Thomas D. Andrews, Glen MacKay and Leon Andrew)

Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre – A new book published by the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Center explores the distant past of the Northwest Territories, reaffirming the NWT’s place as a prime destination for members of the scientific community to conduct research into the distant past of the North. Hunters of the Alpine Ice: The NWT Ice Patch Study draws on the expertise of archaeologists, Aboriginal elders, biologists, geologists and educators to give a more complete picture of what the North was like as far back as 5,000 years ago. The book focuses on more than five years of research conducted on the permanent ice patches of the Mackenzie Mountains. Written by Thomas D. Andrews, Glen MacKay and Leon Andrew, the book is designed as a resource for high school students. Hunters of the Alpine Ice supplements the learning at science camps, held during the summers of 2007 and 2008, when students and elders from Tulita partnered with ice patch scientists and shared their knowledge and experience about the land.

Hunters of the Alpine Ice is available to order and preview from online book retailer.
