by Lawrence Millman, Timothy White (Illustrator)
 
During the 1980s and 1990s, travel and adventure writer Millman collected stories from Northwest Territories, Baffin Island, northern Quebec, Labrador, and both coasts of Greenland.

Overview

During the 1980s and 1990s, travel and adventure writer Millman collected stories from Northwest Territories, Baffin Island, northern Quebec, Labrador, and both coasts of Greenland. His goal is to reproduce the sense of the story rather than the original language, so he changes them and even combines them when it seems best. They run from a paragraph to a couple pages, and cover origins and ancestor, children, magic and taboos, human beings, animals, and death and old age. Some have appeared in magazines.
