The Inuit Dog: Its Provenance, Environment and History
covers the prehistoric origins of the Inuit Sled Dog, the wolf/dog controversy, and the environment in which the breed evolved.
It examines physical characteristics including historical trends in height and weight, coat color patterns, and the breed's unique behaviour and nutritional requirements.
It includes sections on the history of the different systems of Inuit Dog use in early exploration and scientific endeavor at both poles as well as the current operation by the Danish government's Sirius Patrol in North-East Greenland.
It presents a wealth of information in the form of many tables and figures, as well as a thirty-four entry bibliography and one hundred thirty-eight references. This third printing has been updated by the author, and includes information not available in the first two printings.
