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.

A collection of fascinating stories from an anthropological perspective and definately a lot of amusing scenes as well. Its very nice to see a collection of Inuit tales illustrated as a story book like this. The authors talk about how the stories were collected and compiled as well to add some insight into the original storytellers. I definately loved the tale of Noah and the Inuit, such a wonderful (and hysterical) cultural contrast.
