Three nonfiction titles explore key moments in history. Neeluk: An Eskimo Boy in the Days of the Whaling Ships by Frances Kittredge, charts a year in the lives of the Inupiat people in the late 1880s, beginning in July when the villagers move from igloos to tents made of walrus hide, and ending in June when the first whaling ships arrive to trade for needed supplies. Alaskan artist and activist Howard ""Weyahok"" Rock's oil paintings, which open each chapter, record a forgotten way of life, from fishing in a kayak to carrying a baby in a papoose. (June)
