New York : Marshall Cavendish,
is an Inuit teen who has grown up with stories of shape-shifting, taboos
and tales of the distant Dog Children. When white men arrive in the
village, the inevitable clash of cultures ensues. When the white
whalers leave, a young minister stays behind to preach to the tribe and
to try to convert them to Christianity. Minik builds a strong bond
with the young minister but they have a very different idea of what is
best for the Inuit. When he tries to interfere with tribal customs,
he is banished and left to find his own way back to his people. This
is a fascinating glimpse into life among the Inuit before the introduction
of outside influences.
