Overview

  • Classic works by one of North America's greatest storytellers brought back to print in a new paperback series
  • Inspiration for the major motion picture from Infinity Media and First Look International

Central to Farley Mowat's writing is his quest to understand the often-forgotten native people of the vast arctic wilderness. In this moving collection, he allows these people to describe in their own words the adventures they experience as they struggle to survive in an isolated, untamed land. Stories of survival and courage, of superstition and fate, of uncompromising loyalty to family and tribe are presented here, offering a vivid portrait of a people whose existence is often beyond the comprehension of modern man.

    Not Great

    Even though the setting and theme of this book seems very interesting, it is very hard to understand and follow along. Although it would be nice to see a different version of the book to come out with different wording.
