Paperback. 224 pp.

A collection of tales rich in cultural significance and insights into the lives of the people of the region The coldest inhabited place on earth. From this strange and beautiful land comes an oral tradition that has altered little in two thousand years. Unhampered by a belief in a single god or deity every object in these tales is given its own spirit, will, or existence. A mound of snow can change into a girl hiding from the moon. A young boy can change into a whale, his spear into a fin. Here is a true spiritual democracy and purity of folk art rarely found in traditional tales.
