Mr. Siksik was a great character but Kusugak didn't pursue him enough. A malicious squirrel that suffers through the arctic cold, carries out curses for his shaman and can pretend not to hear the shaman's commands is not a character that should be left underdeveloped. The story was kind of rickety but the descriptions of Inuit life and details of how to make igloos, kayaks etc. and the attention given to the feeling of living in the north were fucking awesome. Can I say 'fuck' on this thing? ...more

This was a fascinating book that I really enjoyed. And I learned how to count to three in Inuktitut! Read the full review.

What a great book set in the barren lands of Canada’s Nunavut. This is the story of banishment, medicine power, vengeful spirits, a longing for love and redemption. Michael Kusugak digs deep into Inuit tradition and pulls out a tale that should be a national treasure.
