All newspaper articles about Inari from the middle of the 19th century until the 1940s have been collected in the work. It is therefore an extraordinary journey through time into local history, because the narrators are not researchers but contemporaries themselves. From these stories, the peculiar past of northernmost Finland emerges in miniature, in both humorous and tragic tones. The topics range from the Ivalojoki gold rush to the daily life of the old Lapland keeper, from the feasts of officials to the terrible trials of the Spanish flu, as well as from the stages of tourism to the destruction of the war in Lapland. The rich period illustration emphasizes the strong pulsating life of the past Inari and the perseverance of the ancestors.
