Beyond providing basic biological
information of these ghost species, Nancy Langston takes the
reader on a scientific and cultural tour in the far North, analyzing
the combined effects of accelerated climatic processes
and Anthropocene land-use change, as well as showing the
spiritual depths of the Indigenous tribes who consider caribous,
sturgeons, and loons totems… The volume has a well-deserved place on the bookshelves of ecologists, conservationists, and cultural anthropologists.
