The book contains five tales told at the top of the world, written and drawn by Inuit, Northerners, and other Canadians.
Kivalliq Inuit Association President Jose Kusugak and noted Inuit printmaker and graphic artist Germaine Arnaktauyok recount one of many magical adventures of Kiviuq, the ‘first man’ of Inuit legend.
Award-winning children’s author Michael Arvaarluq Kusugak muses poetically on seals, the northern lights, and his past in On Waiting, a story beautifully illustrated by watercolourist Susan Thurston Shirley.
Nicholas Burns teams up with George (Captain Canuck) Freeman to present Blizzard House. In this science fiction adventure, a teenage couple is trapped between futuristic visions of arctic housing that are doing battle around them.
Despite its title, The Great Slo-Pitch Massacre is a humourous tale of young love gone wrong during a municipal slo-pitch tournament. Yes, slo-pitch -- sport of beer leagues across North America—is played in the Arctic. Written and drawn by Nicholas Burns.
Nicholas has also created Film Nord, a farcical detective story starring an Inuk RCMP officer. When someone is murdered while making a movie on the tundra, Constable Puqittuq and her loyal dog must solve the bizarre crime.
