172 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w illustrations. " 'By ear we forget, but paper says put' - this was how one Inuk, the heir of an oral cultural tradition, summed up the importance of a written literature. Over the past few decades, Inuit writers have responded with enthusiasm to the challenges and opportunities provided by a written language. This anthology fills a significant gap in bringing together, for the first time, a selection of Inuit writings that are often not easily available to readers in the South. The stories, poems, essays, plays, memoirs, and songs included in this book draw the reader irresistibly into the world of the Inuit, to share their memories and their hopes, their joy and their grief, their anger and their laughter." Contents include: The Little Arctic Tern, the Big Polar Bear; A Spring Seal Hunt; So You Want to Kill an Eskimo; The Whale and the Char; The Giant Bear; Marble Island; Akulak the Shaman; Blood-thirsty Enemies; Medicines of the Past; The Half-Fish; Nipikti the Old Man Carver; I Make My Living by Carving; A Story of Starvation; Remembering Old Times; In the Spring When the Sun Never Sets; Story of Inukshuk; The Faithless Wife; We Must Have Dreams, etc., etc. Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny dent on bottom edge of front board. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and top edge of rear flap, light soiling and rubbing, one tiny edge tear archivally taped, some areas of very light browning on front flap and on front panel.
