Inuujaq, a little girl who travels with her grandmother onto the tundra, soon learns that the tundra’s colourful flowers, mosses, shrubs, and lichens are much more important to Inuit than she originally believed. This informative story, which teaches the many uses for Arctic plants, also includes a field guide with photographs and scientific information about a wide array of plants found throughout the Arctic ecosystem.
