Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

James lives in the hamlet of Tuktoyuktuk in the Northwest Territories, above the Arctic Circle. The community is often just called Tuk to save time. Even though he lives in the town now, James grew up on the land, learning the traditional values and survival skills of his people. In this book, James and his daughter Rebecca go on a trip to harvest beluga whale. Harvesting and preparing beluga meat as a family is an essential part of what it means to be Inuvialuit.
