A Long Way from Home: The Tuberculosis Epidemic Among the Inuit

Based on recollections of patients, interviews with participants in the government programs, available literature and statistics, and records of the Northern Affairs Program, Grygier examines the programs for the Inuit in all parts of Canada. She also explores the history of tuberculosis in Canada, conditions of life in the North for both Inuit and non-Natives, and the development and modification of government administration of the North. This important study will be of interest to those in Native and northern studies, Canadian social and political history, and the history of medicine in Canada.
