This incredibly informative, illustrated book is the "first comprehensive work on the history of Finnish Lapland" intended for general readers and students. The author considers the cultural, geographical, military and political history of the region, discussing such topics as the impact of the Swedish empire on the Finnish settlement of Lapland, tourism from the 17th century to today, and World War II in Lapland. Terra Ultima provides a picture of Lapland that considers both the Sámi and the Finnish in a broader historical content, and reaches far beyond the infomation generally available in English about Lapland.

Author Maria Lähteenmäki is a docent in Finnish and Scandinavian History at the University of Helsinki.
