A historical coming-of-age story set in the arctic
In this adventurous novel—set in the ancient Arctic, but
told by an inquisitive and entertaining contemporary
narrator—a wandering Inuit hunter named Kannujaq happens
upon a camp in grave peril. The inhabitants of the camp
are Tuniit, a race of ancient Inuit ancestors known for
their strength and shyness. The tranquility of this Tuniit
camp has been shaken by a group of murderous, pale,
bearded strangers who have arrived on a huge boat shaped
like a loon. Unbeknownst to Kannujaq, he has stumbled upon
a battle between the Tuniit and a group of Viking
warriors, but as the camp prepares to defend itself
against the approaching newcomers, Kannujaq discovers that
the Vikings may have motivations other than murder and
warfare at the heart of their quest. This lush historical
fiction is steeped in Inuit traditional knowledge and
concepts of ancient Inuit magic.
