Upside Down: Seasons among the Nunamiut

Synopsis

Offers a unique and deeply evocative picture of an at once disappearing and evolving world A vivid description of the people and the life of Anaktuvuk Pass, the essays in Upside Down are also an absorbing meditation on the changes that Blackman herself underwent during her time there, most wrench-ingly the illness of her husband, a fellow anthropologist, and the breakup of their marriage. Throughout, Blackman reflects in unexpected and enlightening ways on the work of anthropology and the perspective of an anthropologist evermore invested in the lives of her subjects. Whether commenting on the effect of this place and its people on her personal life or describing the impact of progress on the Nunamiut - the CB radio, weekend nomadism, tourism, the Information Superhighway - her essays offer a unique and deeply evocative picture of an at once disappearing and evolving world.
