Grygier describes the plight of the Inuit people in the face of a tuberculosis epidemic. The author includes the victims' personal narratives throughout the book. Issues examined include: the history of tuberculosis in Canada, the role of colonialism, the government's response to the problem, the effect on the patients' families and livelihood, and the patients' experiences in hospitals and sanatoriums. Finally, the book ends with the author's own critique concerning the epidemic and the Canadian government's role in dealing with the problem.
