No year of publication or statement of edition indicated. (The illustrations and letters contained within are all dated 1958.) 47 pages. Stapled red card covers with black binders tape to the spine. Light crease to the bottom right corner, faint crease to the top right corner of the front wrap. Minor shelfwear to show. Very gently read if at all. Interior is clean and unmarked, no highlighting or inscriptions. The first page states, “This project has been done by the pupils of room 1 under the direction of their teacher Sister E. L. Herauf”, listed underneath is the list of 21 students ranging in age from 9 yrs. to 16 yrs of age. From the page titled – “At Chesterfield”…This year there are no igloos at Chesterfield. All the Eskimos live in wooden houses. Today, however, April the twenty eighth, an Eskimo who returned from Rankin, is building an igloo for himself and his family.” I believe this is a first printing but unable to verify for sure. A poignant piece of Inuit history.
