In this book, Arctic Winter Games champion Johnny Issaluk explains the basics of agility, strength, and endurance games, from the one-foot high kick to the head pull and the airplane.

How To Build An Igloo: And Other Snow Shelters
Authors:
Artists:
Format: Paperback
Grade Levels: 4;

How are the ice blocks of igloos so perfectly formed and fitted, and able, it's been said, to withstand the weight of a polar bear? How can you determine if the fresh snow that's fallen outside your front door is as good for making a slab shelter as a snowman? What is a slab shelter, anyway? For that matter, what are drift caves, spruce traps, snow block walls, and bivy bag shelters, and how would you go about building them, whether for winter fun or protection from the weather?

In this instructive, whimsical, illustrated manual, Norbert E. Yankielun, a seasoned cold-regions explorer and researcher, takes readers step-by-step through the process of constructing and inhabiting a range of useful snow structures, from the most basic to the more complex. Whether you're a veteran back country skier or a backyard builder, this is one book you won't want to be without. 100 black-and-white line drawings.

Additional Information
208 pages | 9.00" x 5.60"

Territory Note:
While this book does give a short historical perspective of igloos, the main content is not focused on Indigenous peoples or cultures.
