96 pp, 8vo (8 3/8" H). Beautifully illustrated throughout in b&w by the author. "Kungo's people - the Inuit on the coast in the Far North - are starving because the summer run of fish has failed them and the caribou herds have not returned. A hot-headed young Inuit hunter accuses the inland Indians of deliberately setting fires to prevent the caribou migration. Kungo journeys inland with the falcon bow and discovers the truth of the caribou's disappearance. The Indians are also starving, he finds. It is up to Kungo to prevent a bloody feud from breaking out between these neighboring peoples. With the help of his sister, Shulu, Kungo is able to explain to the Indians why the fish have not come up the river and to convince them that the Inuit, as well, have no food. In a dramatic and moving conclusion, Kungo and his sister manage to bring about a new understanding between the Inuit and Indians that results in lasting peace." Very slight bowing to boards, minor fading to top edge of boards.
