"In a field of study - climate change/sea ice/Inuit - that can appear to be, at the least, overcrowded, The Meaning of Ice stands out and is outstanding. As I read it, what came to mind was that the best way to describe the volume's qualities is that it is nothing less than a work of Ethno-Anthropology, an odd but right term to use here. The Inuit who participated in Siku-Inuit-Hila, in concert with the project's editors and scientific advisors, have produced a work that removes its subject from the realm of abstraction and in so doing makes it absolutely clear that the sea ice is not someplace Inuit only venture onto; rather it is an essential aspect of Inuit culture and life. The Meaning of Ice is very much greater than the sum of its parts and kudos to all involved in it."-- "Arctic"
