Do Glaciers Listen?
Local Knowledge, Colonial Encounters, and Social Imagination (Brenda and David McLean Canadian Studies)
This book explores the intertwined natural and cultural histories of the Mount Saint Elias ranges, where Alaska, British Columbia, and the Yukon Territory meet. Through differing perspectives on glaciers - seen as inanimate by Europeans and sentient by Aboriginal peoples - the author shows how social relations are shaped by both biophysical and cultural processes. This in-depth look at the region during the late stages of the Little Ice Age is a must-read for anthropology and Native and northern studies enthusiasts.
