Abstract:

A collection of illustrated Eskimo folktales. In The Man Who Married a Seagull, a lady seagull is transformed into a human so she can marry one, The Wolverine Secret is on a raven who stole the sun and the moon, while in the title story a food shortage threatens a village when a girl stops dreaming of geese, because geese only arrive if she dreams of them. Based on decades of research and extended collaboration with Inuit storytellers, award-winning author Howard Norman's masterful retellings of ten Inuit tales invite readers on a unique story--journey from Siberia and Alaska to the Canadian Arctic and Greenland. Dramatic illustrations inspired by stonecut art of the Inuit people capture the beauty and mystery of these stories as they carry us--sometimes laughing, sometimes crying--from village to village over taiga, tundra, snow plains, and the iceberg-filled sea.
