by Normee Ekoomiak

A dangerous world where men live so close to the elements that they sleep in houses carved of ice: What could be a more tempting universe to a child? All the better that this world is real. Ekoomiak, an Inuit (Eskimo) artist whose colored, playful paintings and tapestries provide this book's illustrations, offers a richly detailed account of his childhood in northern Quebec.
