An Artist at the Top of the WorldBook - 2008
Inuksuk Journey is the page-turning and visually stunning chronicle of Mary's summer trip to the Arctic, inspired by her long-held fascination with the ancient Inuit symbol of the inuksuk. An engaging mix of travel journal and gorgeous artbook, Inuksuk Journey combines the best of travel writing with breathtaking paintings showcased in large format across the pages of this book. Her "you-are-there" journal, lavishly illustrated with photographs, sketches, and artifacts, includes encounters with Arctic wildlife, hunting, fishing, and living off the land, and visiting undisturbed relics of Inuit life dating back thousands of years. The knowledge she gains from her Inuit guides allows deep insight into the various forms of the inuksuk and its many purposes. Readers are offered an amazing view of the geography, people, and culture of the Far North, both ancient and modern. Each trip day that Mary experienced inspired striking paintings of the land, sea, sky, wildlife, and the people and culture of the Arctic.
