This is an excellent book to give insight to the Inuit and allows the reader to connect to the artist. It focuses on the artist instead of the story. Also it can be a place of research because it has mini biographies. The artwork is amazing.

A memorable event from the life of each of four Inuit artists, told as stories, followed by a biographical sketch and photo of one of artists works. An unusual book.
