Overview

So you think Native American stories are all hymns of devotion to Mother Earth? Well, you don’t know Wolverine, the Labrador Innu trickster figure.

He makes the comic book superhero seem like little more than a two bit punk. When Wolverine is on the scene, weird things can and do happen — birch trees have eyes, a pile of shit can talk, and farts can literally kill. Recommended not just to devotees of Native American culture, but also to readers in search of a chuckle if not a rip-roaring laugh.

About the Author

Lawrence Millman has written 14 books, including such titles as Our Like Will Not Be There Again, Last Places, Northern Latitudes, and An Evening Among Head-hunters. He has made over 30 trips to the Arctic and Subarctic, but he's never been to Paris (Paris, Maine: once). He lived in East Greenland for parts of 1984 and 1985 while collecting the material for this book. An explorer as well as an ethnographer, he chooses his destinations based on the internet; if a place doesn't have internet access or a website, he immediately packs up his gear and heads there.
